|Abstract: ||We are investigating the nature of knowledge building in virtual communities. In particular, we are exploring the possibility that a small group of students collaborating online on math problems can construct shared group knowledge that exceeds the knowledge of the individual group members. That is, can people working and learning as a community accomplish tasks that none of them would have been able to do individually?|
