Williams, Sean; Pury, Cindy
International Journal of Educational Technology, v3 n1 Nov 2002
Reports the findings of a study conducted on Clemson University's electronic collaboration tool "Collaborative Learning Environment" in order to determine student opinions, and specifically why they didn't collaborate with each other in a discussion but instead repeated the teacher-as-questioner and student-as-answerer paradigm. Outlines an experimental online collaboration pedagogy. (Author/LRW)
