Abstract

Two completely online collaborative learning courses measured social ability at the beginning and end of the course. Course 1 had context-aware activity notification tools implemented; Course 2 did not. Course 2 demonstrated a significant decrease in social ability across groups and for the course as a whole; this differed from Course 1 which had increases in social ability with the awareness tools. Implications for use of context-aware activity notification tools in online learning systems are discussed.
