 What’s on the horizon that can help
 online and web-enhanced courses?




                                        2
Networked Collaborative Tools

   New options available to provide
    collaborative learning opportunities*




                                            3
Collaborative Learning
   Consists of students working interactively
    in groups
     using synchronous and asynchronous
      methods for student engagement and
      interaction
     to complete activities, assignments, and
      projects*



                                                 4
Computer-Supported Collaborative
Learning
   CSCL focus:
     Enhance    peer interaction in groups
     Get students engaged in the
      content by working with others
     Facilitate sharing and
      distribution of knowledge
      among the group
     Enrich the social presence
      and interaction of the online
      community*                              5
Computer-Supported Collaborative
Learning
   Interactions occur through the use of computer-
    supported collaborative learning tools and
    techniques
     Collaborativelearning supported by technology
     Use of technology enhances the process

   Technology provides the opportunity for
    spontaneous collaboration
     Technology   coordinates this collaboration*



                                                      6

Practical Tips for CSCL
   Use an open ended collaborative task
      Multiple perspectives
      Multiple solutions
   Group students providing guidelines and
    expectations
      Use             small groups such as dyads and triads
   Choose transparent and user-friendly
    desktop video conferencing systems*
    Veerman, A. & Veldhuis-Diermanse, E. (2001). Collaborative learning through computer-mediated communication in academic
    education. In the Proceedings of the Computer support for Collaborative Learning Conference (CSCL) 2001, Maastricht University,
    Holland. Presents four studies that all took place as part of an academic course, in which students had to work collaboratively on
    complex tasks by the use of a CMC system.
                                                                                                                                         24
