Abstract

The experimental study investigated the effects of a cooperation script with technology and face-to-face forms of group learning. The results revealed that the use of scripted cooperation and the scripted-unscripted sequence for instructions had a positive effect on group-efficacy. When face-to-face groups used scripted instructions they felt more satisfied with discussion process than when using unscripted instructions. In contrast, computer mediated groups felt equally satisfied when using both forms of instruction.
