By using online discussion platform, people can share and learn from each other, but it may have network bullying and low participation. To achieve benefit of using network discussion, the platform must become altruistic, that is, high participation, no bulling, and having constructing comments. This study proposes a method to build an altruistic discussion platform for learning portfolio where students can inspect and learn from others’ works, then do reflection learning by peer discussions. The platform uses Ignoring from Behavior Modification to decrease negative comments to avoid abuses. It uses Positive Reinforcement of Behavior Modification, to increase the engagement of students. Finally, through the concept of Model in Social Learning Theory, the platform put well-performing students on a board so that others can imitate the behavior of them. The data from experiments and the questionnaires show that our approach on discussion platform significantly guided students' discussion toward altruistic.
