Abstract

Community Question Answering (CQA) platforms like Stack Over- flow enable gamified and moderated community-driven knowledge creation. We report on our experiences of introducing Stack Over- flow in our Computer Science BSc programme and explore whether these platforms can (1) reduce the workload of lecturers in answer- ing questions in large-scale classrooms, and (2) create a community of learners in the large-scale setting of ∼1600 students.
