Accessing student interests in ICS3C/3U

I’m thinking about trying to tap into the students’ interests in my online computer science course. We’re at the point now where the [up-to-date] students have enough of the basics to be able to pursue topics of their choosing.

I was considering making a discussion forum/topic where they can share ideas they’re interested in, and then encouraging them to pursue that learning. I’m not sure how to word it, or manage it, or what exactly I hope to get from it, except that it’s important for students to takeĀ charge of their own learning. Maybe several students will have similar interests and be able to pursue them together.

Suggestions are welcome ;)
