Collaborative learning is a set of different ways of learning. A student group aims to achieve the common goal by working and learning together.
Crucial for collaborative learning is that the group members are responsible for the learning of others in the group as well as for their own.
Interaction and dialogical skills develop alongside with the task at hand. Collaborative learning suits well in an online setting.
