(2001). Collaborative learning through computer-mediated communication in academic education. In the Proceedings of the Computer support for Collaborative Learning Conference (CSCL) 2001, Maastricht University, Holland. Presents four studies that all took place as part of an academic course, in which students had to work collaboratively on complex tasks by the use of a CMC system. 21
