AbstractThis paper recounts the preliminary findings of a research project designed to explore the relevance of computer-mediated communication technologies for the collective and social purposes that are an integral part of labour education. The initial goal of the project was to test conferencing systems, related computer-based collaborative learning spaces, and online course materials in order to determine if and how these media could be used to facilitate and enhance labour education in forms that foster the cooperative, collaborative, and collective ideals of the labour community.
