Abstract

The MOOC context challenges social learning theory to perform at scale, and in an informal setting, but platforms may not have functionality which affords this. This study examines an intervention engineered into the social learning environment intended to increase this performance: The Comment Discovery Tool. Results from the initial iteration of this tool suggest positive impact, but further work is suggested to iterate in line with the stigmergic design paradigm.
