It is interesting the role that a facilitator has in an online course.  I often wonder to what extent the facilitator should engage in the facilitation…do you guide the knowledge construction to the point that you are steering the learners, or do you simply guide and support what the learners gather and monitor that they simply do not veer off course?  Or does the pedagogical approach dictate this?
