ABSTRACT
The Integrated Participation Evaluation Tool (iPET) is a Web-based application combining social-network analysis and visualization to enable distance learning instructors and students to improve their participation in online discourse and so improve their overall learning experience. An analysis of the results obtained in a study using iPET in a distance learning context shows that iPET increases participation and motivation in distance learning courses without increasing facilitator workload.
