Details The purpose of this research project was to transform a student culture in which very little independent study was being done outside of class and classroom learning involved students mainly as passive participants. Based on analysis of student interactions in terms of their cognitive and social presences guided by a framework of the Community of Inquiry (CoI), and results of the CoI Survey Instrument conducted as a post-course questionnaire, it was apparent that the web-based application supported student collaboration outside of class and that active participation in collaboration contributed to integration of online and in-class student collaborative learning tasks. Furthermore, results of pre- and post-questionnaire which measures the quality of student active learning showed that the students actively participated in discussion both in class and outside of class.
