Online Collaborative Learning: Theory and Practice by Tim S. Roberts
Online Collaborative Learning: Theory and
Practice provides a resource for researchers and practitioners in the
area of online collaborative learning (also known as CSCL,
computer-supported collaborative learning), particularly those working
within a tertiary education environment. It includes articles of
relevance to those interested in both theory and practice in this area.
It attempts to answer such important current questions as: how can
groups with shared goals work collaboratively using the new
technologies? What problems can be expected, and what are the benefits?
In what ways does online group work differ from face-to-face group
work? And what implications are there for both educators and students
seeking to work in this area?
