Abstract

How can online collaborative learning be evaluated? Are communication patterns valid indicators of online learners' participation and performance? The purposes of this study are to (1) explore the role of communication in the Web-based collaborative learning (CL) community, (2) explore the online communication patterns of two graduate Web-based collaborative learning courses, (3) examine the self, peer, and product evaluation results, and (4) investigate the relationships between group communication patterns and evaluation results through the analysis of online archived data and interviews with students in the course. Findings suggest that the course context, individuals' values, and the group's management strategies are influential factors to group communication patterns.
