Weeks 2 and 3 of the Presentation Skills MOOC

Visible to anyone in the world

Students still seem engaged on the course and there is plenty of useful discussion occurring.  I am trying to encourage and support by making my presence felt.  There was one unusual reply to a message I posted - "yah".  I find it hard to interpret.

Yah's good! As only a fraction of any audience bothers to comment at least this person is on the cusp of engagement. Encouragement with a four or five letter reply?!

I wonder whether it was a mistyping of "yes".  It was also a reply to a message of mine replying to someone else so it could have been replying to them.

You are right that it suggests at least some engagement.
