Mapping Online Discussions with Lexical Scores.
Graddy, Duane B.
Journal of Interactive Learning Research, v14 n2 p209-29 2003
Examines online discussions using lexical scoring techniques. Suggests that online conversations become more sophisticated as learners interact with each other over the duration of a course, that collaboration among learners fosters the social construction of knowledge and that evidence of such knowledge-building activities is embodied in the tone of the group discussions.
