Abstract [en]

Achieving active participation has been argued as one of the most important challenges in distance education. This research examines whether a new and emerging synchronous communication medium, instant messaging (IM), may enable students to participate more actively in online group work. When comparing groups that adopted the IM system with groups that did not, it was found that the adopters reported a higher sense of participation, and spent more time working with content and communicating with peers. The study indicates that the groups that adopted the IM system may have operated with a higher level of participation than those who did not
