Learn how cohorts and teams can be used more effectively for collaborative learning in Open edX. This talk will address how we are using Open edX in conjunction with collaboration tools to enable "distance innovation" with small cohorts of online learners, creating new ventures in cross-disciplinary groups. We will discuss how we can predict who will be successful in the course based on intra- and inter-team communications, using the principles of social presence to improve online learning through regular engagement and incremental improvement. We’ll explain how we developed a customized extension to the LTI XBlock and used the additional data fields (cohorts and teams) to populate channels and set permissions in a Slack-like collaboration environment, allowing individuals to be placed into an appropriate context when linking from their Open edX course.
