Abstract

IN RECENT YEARS, INCREASED ATTENTION has been directed towards the design of distributed and collaborative learning environments that enable sharing of information, resources, and perspectives. The information-rich and communicative aspects of the Internet offer a feasible avenue for collaboration among learners by allowing access to data, information, and multiple points of view. This paper describes a conceptual framework that can be used to guide the design of distributed learning environments-particularly those that utilize the capabilities of computer and Internet technology. This paper and framework offer implications for improving online collaboration among learners and for informing future designs of computer-supported collaborative learning environments.
