IM and online teaching more thoughts

As I mentioned in my previous post, this past Fall in my two online courses [and in my one ftf class] I provided my Skype ID so students who wanted to ask questions personally could do so. This worked very well. No one abused the account, but only a small number of students used it. I was thinking today perhaps that was because students use other IM services. So this winter I will open dedicated accounts in as many IM services as I can and post the IDs for student in the four courses I will be teaching January – April.
