Social Network Analysis of a Blended Learning experience in higher education
AbstractThis paper is about a blended learning experience which combines face to face classes with virtual sessions in higher education. As far as we know, interactive relationships in e-learning can influence the process and quality of knowledge building.
The aim of this study is to investigate empirically the relationships between network structures and social knowledge building in an asynchronous writing environment through discussion forums into a learning management system (LMS). Taking into account all the messages produced and shared in this experience by both teachers and students, we are going to organize all of them and analyze how they interact in the learning process.
