AbstractA major limitation of the current generation of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is a lack of opportunity for students to make use of each other as resources. Analyses of attrition and learning in MOOCs both point to the importance of social engagement for motivational support and overcoming difficulties with material and course procedures. A help seeking intervention has been developed to address these limitations. The intervention is designed to support help seeking as well as increasing the probability that help requests will be met with a satisfactory response. While virtually all MOOCs offer threaded discussion affordances where students can post help requests, some students are reticent to ask for help, and even when students do post help requests, many of these requests go unanswered. https://github.com/DANCEcollaborative/forum-xblock
