I agree with you on this. I am taking some online courses working toward my Masters and I find that to be true with discussion of readings. I do see others' points of view, and it helps me get deeper meaning. However, the written word is not as good as the spoken word for that. I often miss something and when I re-read the post from someone, I realize I didn't catch what they were saying the first time around.
So, discussion does contribute so much to our understanding of reading selections, in my opinion.

Watching these videos and the groups discussing these literature texts, I am so taken back to my college English classes and reminded of how discussing literature with a group of other readers SO ENHANCES a reading! Others see things that I don't "get" the first or second or ANY reading through....things that then seem so OBVIOUS and critical.
