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. A synchronous collaboration intervention has been developed to address these limitations. The intervention makes synchronous collaboration opportunities available to students in a MOOC context. Research in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning has demonstrated that conversational computer agents can serve as effective automated facilitators of synchronous collaborative learning. However, typical MOOC providers do not offer students opportunities for synchronous collaboration, and therefore have not so far benefited from this technology. https://github.com/DANCEcollaborative/collab-xblock
