How to promote collaboration between course members?
2004 (Swedish)Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
Collaboration between members is a crucial matter for challenging learning and assessment of net based courses. We use Fronter as a conference system for a course in leisure studies at A-level. In this every participant has an own page not accessible for the rest of the group. If a member wants to raise anything of interest for the whole group s/h/e addresses this on a joint page. The participants should in an easy way be able to invite others into a more private chat, "home-room", as a way to get to know each other on an emotional level, not necessarily connected to the content of the course. When meeting students live we often spend time for the participants go get to know each other on a personal level, which enables peer collaboration and assessment. In a distance course, in which the participants as best see each other in a camera, it is difficult to create this atmosphere of trust and friendship. As a result there is little communication between the participants. In this session we would like to get to know about what other systems can offer and exchange experiences about how to enhance friendship and cooperation among the participants.
