Who Wants to Chat on a MOOC? Lessons from a Peer Recommender System [chapter]

François Bouchet, Hugues Labarthe, Rémi Bachelet, Kalina Yacef
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Peer recommender systems (PRS) in MOOCs have been shown to help reducing attrition and increase performance of those who use them. But who are the students using them and what are their motivations?  ...  And why are some students reluctant to use them? To answer these questions, we present a study where we implemented a chat-based PRS that has been used during a MOOC session involving 6,170 students.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Unow, and in particular Régis Millet for their technical assistance.  ...
