Abstract

Research suggests that African American female students might participate in online collaborative activities for cultural reasons. This study described African American female students' participation in online discussions and the dynamic ethnic factors that impact the confidence of African American female students in online collaborative learning. Three major phenomena described African American female Students' e-learning collaborative experiences: a preference to be the leader in the group to decrease their level of inferiority, a willingness to work in a mixed group to combine knowledge from others that will enhance their overall presentation, and a timid attitude towards participating in discussions due to intangible racial identity.
