Abstract

This paper presents an approach that attempts to bring students together by creating a social learning community that will stimulate asynchronous thinking. The paper specifically looks at the number of times a given student will share and recreate opinions for one posting. The paper first introduces the benefits of asynchronous thinking and then describes how it can be beneficial in teaching. This is followed by examining the success of building communities for collaboration in teaching. The impact of using a social community is described which then lead to the design of this experiment to build a social collaborative community to motivate students to think outside the classroom. The implementation and results of this experiment are presented. The student’s participation could be generally categorised as awareness of own thinking, seeking accuracy, teaching others, illustrating to others and asking for help. The results show that a student can make as much 16 different comments on one posting. The paper concludes with a discussion on the analysis of the results.
