This paper presents a description of two collaborative projects conducted with graduate students from two different universities, during two consecutive fall semesters. The instructors, with a history of personal collaboration both in person and online, designed an activity to provide their graduate students with the opportunity to participate in organized collaborative activities directly related to content in their courses. A year later, they again included a joint collaborative activity as part of their courses. Based on student input and instructor observation, emphasis shifted from product over process during the first year, to process over product during the second. These two models are described, including lessons learned, and a brief statement about future directions.
