Analysis of a Global Online Debate and the Development of an Interaction Analysis Model for Examining Social Construction of Knowledge in Computer Conferencing
ARTICLE

Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 17, Number 4, ISSN 0735-6331

Abstract

Looks for appropriate interaction analysis/content analysis techniques that assist in examining the negotiation of meaning and coconstruction of knowledge in collaborative learning environments facilitated by computer conferencing. Reviews strengths and shortcomings of existing interaction analysis techniques and proposes a new model based on grounded theory building for analyzing the quality of computer-mediated communication (CMC) interactions and learning experiences.
