Abstract

Based on an earlier work, authors suggest that in higher education setting, improved learning experience for lecturers and students is possible through a meaningful collaboration, communication and authoring aiming the construction of knowledge by students [4]. The current work investigates the implementation of inquiry-based learning and the development of community of inquiry (CoI) through Google Applications for education in a higher education setting. More specifically, it provides evidence on how does cloud learning community is developed through the three presences of CoI: Teaching Presence (TP), Social Presence (SP) and Cognitive Presence (CP) for three Management Information Systems (MIS) courses. The CoI survey instrument was used to quantitatively examine the development of a CoI within the educational setting.
