Tips for Online Students to Work Successfully in Virtual Groups
When possible, choose group members with similar schedules. Online students reside in different time zones and can have opposing work schedules.
Be proactive and begin setting the groundwork early. As online learners, your time is extremely precious.
Align group roles and responsibilities with individual strengths and interests. Organize – Research – Record – Analyze.
Identify what project activities must be accomplished, in what order and by when.
Choose a group leader who is comfortable taking on that role
Communication is key; establish clear guidelines around when, where and how your group will communicate with each other.
Create a comfortable forum to communicate through, even if it’s not the online classroom setting.
Schedule extra conference calls closer to project deadlines to address any last minute hiccups and tasks.
Always be honest, but respectful, in a group. If either the project or a fellow group member is heading down a path you don’t agree with, speak up.
Ask your professor to implement mandatory peer evaluations. This strategy encourages equal participation by ensuring individual accountability.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your professor. Provide regular group updates, which can then be used to track progress and mediate concerns.

Superb graphic of the 8 steps important to engaging e-learners, along with an excellent collection of links providing more tips for the teacher/professor whose course includes distance-learners. I certainly could have used this information my last half dozen years as a Marshall Graduate College professor/lecturer!

The Complexities of Collaboration

The Complexities of Collaboration | elearning stuff | Scoop.it
Through my experiences and after questioning other educators, I have determined that your ability to collaborate effectively is influenced by many factors-
  • Previous experience
  • Growth mindset
  • School context
  • Time
  • Personality
  • Insecurity
  • Perceived value of collaboration
  • Understanding of collaboration-what it is and isn’t.
  • Appreciation of others
  • Learning philosophy
  • Balanced Contribution
  • Belief in a common goal
  • Autonomy or Interdependence- Seeing yourself as ‘we’ not just ‘me'
