Abstract

This paper proposes a design for a socially-purposed learning portfolio, in which students' learning data are collected in a purposeful way in order to motivate them to engage in social interaction. Based on this idea, a conversation platform is introduced, where the student's records, comments, material produced and topics discussed are presented on a profile page to encourage reading-related discussion. Furthermore, the system provides tips adapted for each student to encourage them to join the reading-related conversation based on their individual reading taste and discussion status. The concept of the system design is introduced and opportunities and challenges for the socially-purposed learning portfolio are discussed.
