Nokelainen, Petri; Miettinen, Miikka; Tirri, Henry; Kurhila, Jaakko
This paper describes the design and implementation of a real time on-line collaboration tool, EDUCO. The main focus is to demonstrate how the tool is applied to a real life on-line distance education course, discuss the preliminary research findings of the qualitative empirical study, propose directions for future work and discuss implications. The preliminary results show that some of the features used in this tool can be directly applied to a wider context of modern computer-based learning environments.
