EDUCO -- A collaborative learning environment based on social navigation. Web-based learning is primarily a lonesome activity, even when it involves working in groups. This is due to the fact that the majority of web-based learning relies on asynchronous forms of interacting with other people. In most of the cases, the chat discussion is the only form of synchronous interaction that adds to the feeling that there are other people present in the environment. EDUCO is a system that tries to bring in the sense of other users in a collaborative learning environment by making the other users and their the navigation visible to everyone else in the environment in real-time. The paper describes EDUCO and presents the first empirical evaluation as EDUCO was used in a university course.
