About the Authors
  • This volume explores the theoretical, design, learning, and methodological questions relevant to designing for and researching web-based communities to support the learning process. Coming from diverse academic backgrounds, the authors examine what we do and do not know about the processes and practices of designing communities to support educational processes. Taken as a collection, the chapters point to the challenges and complex tensions that emerge when designing for a web-supported community, especially when the focal practice of the community is learning.

    • It is interdisciplinary, as the authors come from diverse academic backgrounds, including computer science, educational psychology and anthropology
    •  The authors use case examples and are frank in examining what we do and do not know about the processes and practices of designing communities to support learning
    •  This book brings together research, theory, and practice
