Abstract

This study examined whether the jigsaw model might be used in an online higher education course to produce the key characteristics of successful cooperative learning: interdependence, individual accountability, development of social skills, and promotive interaction. The authors employed a qualitative case study design to examine a 6-week online literature course that incorporated three jigsaw activities. Analysis of online questionnaires, transcripts from in-depth interviews, and course documents revealed that the jigsaw activities yielded mixed results with regard to the key characteristics of successful cooperative learning. The authors discuss the implications of these findings for the design of online cooperative learning activities. (Contains 5 tables.)
