Abstract: The goal of the study was to develop and examine a computer-supported knowledge building environment, incorporating e-portfolio assessment to scaffold and assess collaborative knowledge building. It involved a quasi-experimental design in a Chinese tertiary setting to understand the characteristics of and relations among knowledge building participation, collaboration, and collective knowledge growth. Students reflected and documented their knowledge building practice in the e-group-portfolios, which helped to characterize and scaffold knowledge building discourse. Students in the KB environment were found more actively engaged in Knowledge Forum and high-level discourse moves. Future research may place emphases not only on forum participation, but also on how high level discourse moves can be fostered to advance collective knowledge towards knowledge creation.
