Abstract

A framework for Online Group Collaborative Learning is illustrated in this paper. The foundation of the framework is based on Piaget’s concepts of assimilation and accommodation and Vygotsky’s theory of social interaction. This paper examines how an online project-based learning approach affected students’ cognitive skills development and motivation, and explored factors leading to successful collaborative projects. The results indicated that, in a project-based online group environment, unique characteristics exist for leadership style and individual role, goal setting and project management, accountability and commitment, peer supportive relationships, individual accomplishment and group accomplishments, and mixed gender and race group preference.
