Introduction to Online Collaboration
by Keisha Radloff 2) Standard 9 of the AASL's Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning- “the student who contributes positively to the learning community and to society is information literate and participates effectively in groups to pursue and generate information”

•“Shares knowledge and information with others
•respects others’ ideas and backgrounds and acknowledges their contributions
• collaborates with others, both in person and through technologies, to identify information problems and to seek their solutions
•collaborates with others, both in person and through technologies, to design, develop, and evaluate information products and solutions” (p. 7).

For whom?

This lesson was designed for
students in a First-Year Freshman
Experience liberal arts program.


To prepare them for group work in college
To build collaborative skills for use in a future career
To introduce them to several tools that support online collaboration From this lesson and assignment, students will be able to:
•Identify the characteristics of an effective collaborator
•Identify several types of online collaboration tools
•Appropriately select and utilize one or more online collaboration tools in a group setting
•Create a cohesive webpage or paper using a collaborative tool
•Analyze the effectiveness of one or more collaboration tools
•Assess their personal collaborative efforts

In lecture, students will learn the characteristics of a good collaborator. A good collaborator has:

Interpersonal Skills
Good building and management skills
Inquiry skills
Conflict Resolution Skills
Synthesis and Presentation Skills
(Bosworth, p. 27) My course design is focused on collaboration and online collaboration tools.

What is collaboration?
To collaborate is "to work jointly with others or together especially in an intellectual endeavor"

The lesson, assignment, and
grading rubric for this session were based off
of the Learner-Centered Teaching model.

Learner-Centered Teaching
“rests on three principles-Collaboration,
Participation, and Responsibility”

Students will also learn about different types of online tools that can support collaboration... ....Online collaboration tools may have these types of features:
Project Management
Video Conferencing
Co-editing abilities
File/Link Sharing Using what?

1) A Projector that hooks up to a computer for the instructor's lecture and online demonstration

2) A computer lab so students may complete a short in-class group activity

demonstration of the following tools:

Tiny Chat
Google Docs

For the assignment, students will break into groups. Groups will choose one or more of these tools to complete an at-home assignment.
This lesson was centered on two different IL Standards:

1) Standard 4 of the ACRL’s Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education - “the information literate student, individually or as a member of a group, uses information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose”.

•“chooses a communication medium and format that best supports the purposes of the product or performance and the intended audience
•maintains a journal or log of activities related to the information seeking, evaluating, and communicating process” and
•“reflects on past successes, failures, and alternative strategies” (p.13).....

All of the indicators listed above will mainly be accomplished by completing the group collaboration assignment and will be assessed using a scaled grading rubric based on five abilites:
