|Abstract:||Multiple levels of data from an asynchronous online course were analyzed to explore student engagement and achievement around a particular course concept. This study examined how productive disciplinary engagement around "wikifolios" via threaded commenting on those wikifolios fostered learning that transferred to performance on external achievement measures not directly targeted in the course. The findings show that a new course feature, peer awarded badges, were effective markers of productive disciplinary engagement, and impressive achievement gains were accomplished without resorting to dreary expository instruction that typifies the majority of online learning. Implications for the design of productive online learning and further areas for research are discussed.|
