Abstract

This study compared small-group and whole-class structures in two large knowledge building communities. We analyzed students’ online notes on Knowledge Forum by KBDex (Oshima, Oshima, & Matsuzawa, 2012). Results found that students in the small-group structure showed better community knowledge advancement. However, the unbalanced distribution of expertise in the small-group class was also observed.
