This article proposes 7 core affordances of technology for collaborative learning based on theories of collaborative learning and CSCL (Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning) practices. Technology affords learner opportunities to (1) engage in a joint task, (2) communicate, (3) share resources, (4) engage in productive collaborative learning processes, (5) engage in co-construction, (6) monitor and regulate collaborative learning, and (7) find and build groups and communities. We elaborate… 
Promoting interaction in online distance education: designing, implementing and supporting collaborative learning
TLDR
This study details how collaborative tasks can be designed and how collaboration support can be used to provide students with opportunities for interaction that fosters acquiring new domain-specific knowledge as well as collaboration skills.
Professional Learning in Cooperative Extension: Understanding Opportunities for Social Learning and the use of Computer Mediated Technologies
Academic) Through social collaboration, adult learners are able to participate in collaborative learning opportunities with their colleagues. These collaborative efforts between learners contribute
A Framework for Small Group Support in Online Collaborative Learning - Combining Collaboration Scripts and Online Tutoring
TLDR
An alternative framework for supporting CSCL learners by combining collaboration scripting and online tutoring is suggested, which presents experiences from an online collaborative learning course and develops the conceptual framework.
Using Design-Based Research to Improve Peer Help-Giving in a Middle School Math Classroom
TLDR
This paper describes three cycles of a designbased research study that aims to design a system to support help-giving and improve interaction quantity and quality across different contexts as well as to better understand whether students benefit by the addition of multiple contexts.
A Wide Lens: Combining Embodied, Enactive, Extended, and Embedded Learning in Collaborative Settings - 13th international conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL 2019)
TLDR
This paper proposes a technology-enhanced learning ecosystem called UbiCoS that supports learner help-giving during face-to-face collaboration and across three different digital learning environments: an interactive digital textbook, an online Q&A forum, and a teachable agent.
Designing Online Learning Activities for Collaborative Learning Among Engineering Students
Engineering is a field or discipline, practice, profession and art to cater to social needs. Always it works in the real world. Therefore, having hands-on experience and working with a group of
Children's Interactive Strategies Around Digital Technology in Collaborative Learning Environments
The current study examines how children develop different interactional strategies around digital technology as they get enculturated within a community of design learners. Using a comparative case
Supporting Students’ Productive Collaboration and Mathematics Learning in Online Environments
Digital technologies provide a wide range of tools and functions that can support students’ learning of mathematics as well as the development of their mathematical and collaborative practices.
A Meta-Synthesis of CSCL Literature in STEM Education
TLDR
The results suggest that different combinations of technology, pedagogy, and collaboration types require different strategies to scaffold students’ learning, as these are the pillars of CSCL.
Students’ engagement and learning experiences using virtual patient simulation in a computer supported collaborative learning environment

Collaborative group engagement in a computer-supported inquiry learning environment
TLDR
The benefits of studying engagement as a multi-faceted phenomenon and extending existing conceptions to include consequential engagement are indicated, with implications for designing technologies that scaffold high quality cognitive and conceptual-to-consequential engagement in a computer-supported collaborative learning environment.
Monitoring collaborative activities in computer supported collaborative learning
TLDR
An approach for analysing learning processes in a CSCL environment to support tutors in their monitoring tasks and the results of the study support the applicability of the proposed approach to content domains where discussion and reflective practice are the most effective learning strategy.

TLDR
This paper adapts the social modes dimension of Weinberger and Fischer’s analytical framework to analyse episodes of interference, in the context of a shared tabletop interface, to better understand its effect on collaborative knowledge construction.
What do students do in a F2F CSCL classroom? The optimization of multiple communications modes
TLDR
How students use different communication modes to share information, negotiate meaning and construct knowledge in the process of doing a group learning activity in a Primary Grade 5 blended learning environment in Singapore could inform design aspects concerning integrating and reinforcing the strengths of both communication modes when introducing computer-assisted collaborative learning (CSCL) in a F2F classroom.
Computer Supported Collaborative Learning
TLDR
The influence of peer interaction on planning and information handling strategies and the negotiation of dialogue processes in joint planning in a computer based task are investigated.
