Abstract: The present study aims to foster social capital among learners engaged in collaborative problem solving. For this purpose, the authors propose the norm of “bi-directional debts” and devise rules for mutual assistance based on this norm. These mutual assistance rules give a person who has been helped by someone an obligation to help another, while, at the same time, giving a person who has assisted someone an obligation to be assisted by someone else. The authors introduced these rules into a project-based cooperative learning setting to verify their effectiveness. This experimental study, which took place in a university’s project-based learning classroom, has suggested that these rules are effective in facilitating the formation of social capital in a group of learners.
