Abstract

This study investigated the use of asynchronous (mailing lists) and synchronous (chat sessions) Internet-based communication and its impact on teachers' attitude toward collaboration, activity completion rate and test performance. Although in this study it was found that attitudes toward collaboration did not affect test performance, the data suggested a relationship between attitudes toward collaboration and use of Internet-based communication. Also, it was found that use of Internet-based communication increased the likelihood of completing the course activities.
