Cakir, Murat Perit; Zemel, Alan; Stahl, Gerry – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2009
In order to collaborate effectively in group discourse on a topic like mathematical patterns, group participants must organize their activities in ways that share the significance of their utterances, inscriptions, and behaviors. Here, we report the results of a ethnomethodological case study of collaborative math problem-solving activities…

Friesen, Norm – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2009
Genre analysis, the investigation of typified communicative actions arising in recurrent situations, has been developed to study information use and interchange online, in businesses and in other organizations. As such, it holds out promise for the investigation of similarly typified communicative actions and situations in CSCL contexts. This…

Rourke, Liam; Kanuka, Heather – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2007
This qualitative case study illustrates barriers to informal argumentation and reasoned debate, i.e., "critical discourse," in online forums. The case is the computer conference of a 15-week, graduate-level humanities course offered entirely at a distance. Twelve students, all with families and careers, were enrolled in the course. We read all…
