This study explored the relationships between learning outcomes, actions and motivational, learning strategy and social ability profiles in a custom made computer-supported learning environment (CSLE) prototype. The CSLE offered three types of services: 1) Tools that support the use of learning resources; 2) Tools that enable flexible and multifaceted peer-to-peer interaction; 3) Tools that increase awareness of other user’s actions. Results showed that all motivational factors were directly or indirectly positively related to learning outcomes. Also self-reported resource management skills and preference for learning by doing were directly positively related to learning outcomes. Both time spent in the CSLE and use of awareness increasing tools were found to be positively related with learning outcomes. Use of social navigation tools in the CSLE was positively strongly related to self-reported group work abilities.
