Abstract: This study examined the effects of two designed learning environments for knowledge building. Two groups of first year Chinese tertiary students learning business English were engaged in a strong form of a knowledge-building environment (Principle-based Learning Environment, PBLE) and a weak form of knowledge-building environment (Knowledge Forum Learning Environment, KFLE), respectively. Inquiry thread analysis of the online discourse suggested PBLE students were more able to self-initiate goals for inquiry, improve ideas, and achieve toward deeper collective knowledge advances. The design issues including the importance and manifestation of knowledge building principles are discussed.
