Social learning is essential in digital learning spaces. However, it can be hard to know who fellow learners are, due to the limited amount and quality of available cues. This lack of social presence could have negative effects on participation, which is the base for social learning. The aim of this paper is to theoretically explore the implications of an explicit digital student identity. Drawing on literature on participation, presence, interaction, and identity, I propose a student e-dentity with the purpose of enhancing social presence and awareness. The implication of such an e-dentity is a more transparent social environment within digital learning spaces.
