Pilgrims' Progress: The Journey towards a Knowledge Building Community in a University Undergraduate Class
Philip, Donald
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v38 n1 Win 2012
The purpose of this study was to examine the progress of a class of third- and fourth-year undergraduate science students as they attempted to create a knowledge building community in a blended or hybrid science education class. The research sought to examine this process through analyses of the frequency of their note postings and responses, and through a social network analysis of their communication patterns for note reading. These data were automatically harvested by the Knowledge Forum knowledge building environment, and downloaded for later analysis. (Contains 5 figures.)
