Google Wave and Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Impact on Higher Education

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Abstract

This ECAR research bulletin is based on a 2010 study that was conducted as part of an examination assignment in the course "Introduction to Communication, Learning, and IT" at a Swedish university (Gothenburg). The study focused on the potential benefits and drawbacks of Google Wave for educational purposes. Study participants’ discussions were observed and analyzed in conjunction with literature on computer-supported collaborative learning and the social constructivist view on education.
