Online forum discussion interactions as an indicator of student community

Shane Dawson
2006 Australasian Journal of Educational Technology  
An implication emerging from these findings is the ability for the institution to implement evaluative measures to gauge levels of student sense of community in a just in time environment.  ...  As discussion interactions are automatically captured and reported, the data provides an indication of the degree of community developing among the student population at a specific snapshot in time.  ...  Deriving from this relationship is the capacity to ascertain levels of student sense of community in a just in time environment.  ...
