The report focus on the development of learning metrics based on analysis of two classes (a graduate discussion group on Technology and Sustainable Economic Technology ("TASED") at the University of California at Berkeley during late fall 2002 and a graduate design studio ("Seattle Studio") at the University of Washington in Seattle during mid-spring 2003). The report provides details of the studies, their methodologies, and key findings, with emphasis given to the Seattle findings. The study yielded many new insights into the nature of distributed dialogue. We proposed learning metrics in this report deal with the logevity and character of conversation threads, the extent to which participants ask prompting questions or make provacative statements that inspire further dialogue.
