"Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education offers a resource for researchers and practitioners in the area of computer-supported collaborative learning (also known as CSCL), particularly those working within a tertiary education environment. This publication includes discussions of relevance to those interested in both theory and practice in this area and ponders 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?"--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
