Tools such as discussion forums are commonly used to facilitate the sharing of information and ideas in fully online and blended learning environments. Do students who actively participate in a unit’s online discussion forum achieve a higher final result than those who do not participate? A study investigates the role online discussion forums can play in generating opportunities for students to build and establish social capital in order to support their academic endeavours.
Digital tools facilitate independent study, providing access to information and resources as well as enabling connections and networking. However, the ease with which students can switch between tasks can also be a distraction, and may be undermining effective learning. Computer logs are used to analyse students’ behaviour in task switching and multitasking and how this behaviour may impact learning.
