This paper reviews the research conducted in the last 20 years on the application of technology in support of collaborative learning in higher education. The review focuses primarily on studies that use Internet-based technologies and social interaction analysis. The review provides six sets of observations/recommendations regarding methodology, empirical evidence, and research gaps and issues that may help focus future research in this emerging field of study. 
Using Padlet for collaborative learning
Technology-based collaborative learning is attaining increasing relevance in higher education. Despite the considerable number of tools and online applications that support collaborative learning,
Using Web 2.0 technology to support collaborative learning in distance education
TLDR
The introduction of Web 2.0 software to distance education may hold the key to creating powerful collaborative learning experience for students who live across the state, nation, and possibly the world.
A study of collaborative tool use in collaborative learning processes
TLDR
A partial grounded theory analysis was performed on three engineering education courses, investigating the collaborative tool selection and collaboration processes and found the presence of internal team motivation and tools that had clearly perceived benefits were important to students.
Virtual collaborative teaching: What value does it bring?
TLDR
Evaluating the success of a virtual learning session that involved international collaboration suggests that students were satisfied with the way the virtual collaborative session went, and that new knowledge was created as a result of the session itself and the assignment accompanying it.
The Role of Outside Affordances in Developing Expertise in Online Collaborative Learning
TLDR
A conceptual framework is outlined that links a model of developing expertise with the affordances of outsideness and a case study of pre-service teacher education is used to demonstrate the framework’s possibilities and limitations.
