Abstract

In e-learning a great deal of use is made of asynchronous communications to enable students to communicate with each other and experience the pedagogical techniques of collaborative learning. While much is known about how to use the technology and there are models for course design that use e-moderator-led academic conferences, this paper focuses on how to design courses that involve self-led teams where students take on the e-moderator role. This research builds on previous work introduces the key activities for designing team working activities within an asynchronous environment. Over three-and-a-half thousand conference messages from computing students working in six distributed teams were analysed and the results provided significant evidence that these activities contributed to the academic progress of a self-led distributed team. These twelve key activities need to be incorporated into courses designed for self-led teams in order to maximise the learning potential of individual members of those teams
