It is sometimes impossible for non-traditonal students and those with major work, family, or community obligations to synchronize their time with that of a cohort of students and the teacher. Thus, until recently they were forced to engage in educational models that required and supported only individualized learning with no student-student interaction. We are, however, seeing the dawn of a new paradigm of distance edcuation in which self-paced learners use “social software” to work co-operatively, for short time periods, in ‘study buddy’ or study groups, thereby gaining the benefits associated with rich student-student interaction.

And of course, immersive environments provide rich forms of student-student interaction that is enhanced by the social presence afforded by avatar body language, gestures, and sounds (McKerlich & Anderson, 2007). The next frontier in distance education programming is providing rich student-student interaction in unpaced, continuous enrolment programs. At Athabasca University we are developing tools and a research program that uses the new genre of social software to allow self-paced students to meet each other and work co-operatively on short-term projects in addition to forming optional study buddy and study group relationships with other students.
