Abstract

Abstract: Many research studies have been conducted to compare the effectiveness of the e-learning to the traditional method. Equally many studies were conducted to find the most efficient and effective e-learning methods to educate the widely dispersed learners. Although many studies indicate the importance of group collaboration for effective learning to occur, not many studies have been done on the relationship of learners' personality types to the group collaboration developments. This pilot study investigated the role of personality types of learners in group collaboration developments in a graduate course conducted via the Computer-Mediated Communication. The study indicates that there are strong correlations between the personality types and group collaboration activities. Also, among the task type, the group size, and the personality types of the learners, the subjects ranked the task type as the most important factor for effective group collaboration.
