The data collection consists of qualitative research interviews with students and observations of F2F webinars and parallel chat communications with problem solving, discussing theoretical concepts and literature, and engaging in various collaborative group works, as well as examinations. Theoretically, the study joins the research tradition of sociocultural theories and Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, CSCL, as well the theoretical approach of self-efficacy and Computer Self-Efficacy (CSE) concerned with individuals' media and information literacy.
