Blake, Canan T. and Rapanotti, Lucia (2001). Mapping interactions in a computer conferencing environment. In: European Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (Euro-CSCL), 22-24 Mar 2001, Maastricht.



In this paper we discuss some preliminary findings from an evaluation on online interactions within a large population undergraduate computing course offered by the Open University (UK). The course uses asynchronous electronic conferencing to provide students at a distance with a collaborative learning environment. One type of online activity on the course is group working, which is of a practical problem solving nature, and is formally assessed.
