AbstractCollaborative learning is for people to learn together in a collaborative manner. Through collaborative learning, not only can learning become more efficient and effective, learners can acquire and improve their team-work skills as well. In this paper, we will discuss how collaborative learning can be done in Internetbased distance education (IBDE). We will first present some background of the research, and then present the tools and systems that can be used for collaborative learning in IBDE. We will then share with you some strategies and techniques we used to implement collaborative learning in teaching a graduate course in an IBDE setting.
