Modeling programming learning in online discußion forums

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this paper, we modelled constructive engagement activities in an online programming discußion. We built a logistic regreßion model based on the underlined cognitive proceßes in constructive learning activities. The findings supported that there is paßive-proactive behaviour and suggested that detecting constructive content can be a helpful claßifier in discerning relevant information to the users and in turn creating opportunities to optimize learning. The results also confirmed the value of discußion forum content, disregarding the crowd approves or not.
