  • Abstract
  • Collaborative learning spaces deployed in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) provide productive social learning opportunities. However, sustaining collaboration in these spaces is challenging. This paper provides a classification of MOOCs participants based on their behavior in a structured collaborative learning space. This analysis leads to requirements for new technological interventions to orchestrate collaborative learning flows in MOOCs. The paper proposes the design of an intelligent agent to address these requirements and reports a study which shows that the intervention of the proposed orchestration agent in a MOOC facilitates to maintain continuous yet meaningful collaboration learning flows.
