The aim of the first chapter, Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education: An Introduction, is to act as a jumping-off point for both researchers and practitioners interested in. This is a library of books on Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL). CSCL is concerned with online education, where small groups of students learn together. The books in this list are concerned with pedagogy, psychology, software design, assessment of learning and issues of group cognition -- Idea List by PhilosophyCritic. 1 Definition "Put briefly, CSCL is focused on how collaborative learning supported by technology can enhance peer interaction and work in groups, and how collaboration and technology facilitate sharing and distributing of knowledge and expertise among community members."

[Tim S Roberts; IGI Global.;] -- This book addresses computer-supported collaborative learning (also known as CSCL) particularly within a tertiary education environment. It includes articles on theory and practice in this area. The Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Book Series is for people working in the CSCL field. The scope of the series extends to 'collaborative learning' in its broadest sense; the term is used for situations ranging from two individuals performing a task together, during a short period of time, to groups of students following the same course and interacting via electronic mail.

This is a wonderfully readable book which goes far beyond the coverage of its title, is well supplied with references and rich in clear examples, and provides an educational resource akin to a. This book is an edited volume of case studies exploring the uptake and use of computer supported collaborative learning in work settings. This book fills a significant gap in the literature. A number of existing works provide empirical research .   "Collaborative learning" means more than just dividing up an assignment and piecing it together at a later time, or what students often call "divide and conquer." Better termed "cooperative learning," it does have a place in higher education. 8 For learning to be collaborative, however, students need to work with each other to solve problems. Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) refers to the activity of peers interacting with each other for the purpose of learning and with the support of information and communication technologies (ICT). CSCL also refers to the learning that results from such activity, and to the research field that studies such activity.
