Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We present early work seeking to understand participation and persistence in online, peer-to-peer learning environments. We obtain log data from the Peer-to-Peer University (P2PU) and: (1) outline our methods to move from raw data to developing metrics that can help explore how to promote deeper participation and persistence rates in open courses, and (2) describe some preliminary findings about different metrics of participation and persistence in P2PU, culled from their log data.
