Learning from discussions

Whole-cohort discussion groups are useless for three main reasons:

You cannot relate to thousands of people;

You cannot post anything original unless you are among the first dozen to post;

You cannot read (or even find) any particular post among hundreds.

Students must be broken up into groups of maximum 100 (at the beginning) falling to (probably) less than 20 by mid-course.
