Abstract: The present study focuses on a particular scripting tool, namely the use of "knowledge types" as a way to structure university students' discourse in asynchronous discussion groups and consequently promote their learning. More specifically, the aim of the study is to determine how requiring students to label their contributions by means of the stages of the progressive inquiry model affects the ongoing critical thinking processes reflected in the discussion. Preliminary results indicate that using this scripting tool can under certain circumstances- enhance critical thinking in online discussions.
