We have released our second book to the Apple iBooks store. This book, “Improving Group collaboration in the Online Learning Environment”, is work done in one of my Masters of Information Technology in Courses courses.
From the book abstract:
Collaborative group projects in the online learning environment pose different challenges than collaborative group projects in a traditional classroom environment. Apart from the collaborative technologies used , other factors affect the success of the effort including cohesiveness, coordination, group size and the assigned task. However, the selection of the appropriate technology affects the success of the group as the technology can either inhibit or enhance the collaborative process and the success of the endeavor.
