dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores how we can design online learning communities to better support connections to the people and resources beginners need when learning to program. I describe and analyze the design and implementation of the Scripts Workshop, a learning environment that supports members of the Scratch online community who are stuck on a programming problem in a Scratch project. The Scripts Workshop considers the People, Activities and Spaces needed to support these users in getting un-stuck. I conclude by describing a set of design principles for building learning webs within online communities, derived from the Scripts Workshop experiment.en_US
