Abstract Social learning platforms improve the learning experience for online learners when they are built for collaboration and community. Social and peer tutoring interactions lead to enduring relationships between members, which in turn keep the members engaged in the pursuit of their goals. When peer learners teach one another, work collaboratively on a problem, interact socially, and build relationships with each other, they then develop a sense of belonging and make the behavioral transition from disengage to engaged learners. OpenStudy is a social learning platform that offers a much-needed informal online learning space, and connects learners who help one another.
