Abstract

This paper explores how to re-engineer collaborative group work practices using online learning technologies, thereby enhancing their role as an effective, flexible and efficient learning exchange. In comparing the performance outcomes of 'online' learning groups to a study of 'real time' learning groups, the paper sets about building a case for the former. The paper deals specifically with how collaborative online learning groups can be used to: establish an authentic learning context; accommodate learner needs; enrich learner experiences; and inform instructor perspectives.
