Abstract: Students at UC Berkeley's School of Information have participated in a persistent, online "backchannel" chatroom during class since the Fall of 2004. This paper describes the affordances offered by this technology for enhanced peer-to-peer and teacher-student interactions in a collaborative learning environment.
