Abstract: This paper reports some findings of our long lasting study in Finland, concerning the dialogic actions in web-based knowledge creation. Groups of professional teachers had an authentic dialogic task in an online environment. They had to create an artifact, an online learning process according to the DIANA model, as a web-document. Seven of the 14 small groups were successful in creating an adequate artifact, and the small groups were accordingly classified into successful and unsuccessful groups. In this paper the main results, based on qualitative and quantitative analysis, are reported. They show how the successful and unsuccessful groups differ clearly and significantly in certain dialogic actions. We claim that the results are promising.
