Abstract

This paper considers student participation and how it might be better measured using technology. A review of existing studies precedes the analysis of course data on participation collected through various methods. The study confirms previous findings showing that even crude electronic measures of participation in a course have a direct relationship with the ultimate success of the student. The implications for the future design of technology will be discussed in relation to the findings.
