Abstract

In this paper we investigate whether learners at university level can appropriately collaborate with peers around individual Open Learner Models (OLM). We describe results from three groups of students who used Facebook alongside an independent OLM to discuss their individual OLM. The results suggest that students can collaborate appropriately when they discuss their learning on Facebook and in face-to-face settings, with the aim to understand.
