The effects of awareness of group members' rationale on collaborative learning activities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

I designed a collaborative learning activity that requires the students to document their task-related rationales while working together, and I developed a collaborative workspace prototype that supports the distributed collaboration of the activity and provides shared document-based rationale spaces. In this study, I examine the effects of awareness of group members' rationale on the collaborative learning activity through a case study of the project management course in Spring 2007. In the class, students carry out the learning activity using the workspace prototype.
