Slackbot "WeAre!" for Online Education
Distance learners differ from residential students not only in the physical and temporal separation from their peers. The discrepancy leads to a series of critical issues for the online education environment, such as high dropout rates, and students’ feelings of isolation.
Motivated to address the aforesaid issues, this project explored the notion of community and mechanisms to promote community with peer knowledge in the online educational setting.
