The "Submissions Forum" was the only time students took on a facilitator-oriented task as they bought into an authentic purpose given for their writing within eWeb.

Namely students were asked to:

... Give any feedback you like, knowing that after it's been here a week, I'll cut & paste your comments to send to the author along with the formal accept or reject email, according to your decisions...

from Facilitator, 10/19/99, Email to Group, Subject:  Submissions posted on Forum

The "Submissions Forum" became the most popular activity within eWeb.

Although facilitator-initiated, students soon took over how they would achieve the given tasks as they transformed this site from facilitator- to student-driven.
