Abstract

Students face additional challenges when working in a virtually distributed team in online courses compared to traditional classrooms. Although the value of online teamwork is widely recognized, there is still a dearth of research that provides evidence on how teams can work effectively in online courses. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of team structure, trust, and conflict on teamwork in online learning environments. The results suggest that team structure was significantly associated with team performance, whereas trust and conflict management contributed to teamwork satisfaction.
