Abstract

This paper focuses on examining the various kinds of pedagogical, organisational or technical elements and constraints of successful application of collaborative learning in distance education. Our research relies on case studies concerning collaborative learning and work in several courses in virtual learning environments. Firstly, based on the implementation and analysis of educational practices with clearly differentiated goals, contents and methodologies, our research revealed that the progress of virtual learning groups goes across four critical moments: Group formation, consolidation, development and dissolution. Finally, we propose, explore and evaluate tools and technical functionalities that mediate collaboration and support effective virtual collaborative work and learning
