Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL)

This webpage provides resources related to the research field of CSCL.
In addition, there is a webpage on the International Journal of CSCL.
Information is also available on my own CSCL research project, the Virtual Math Teams project.

An Introduction to CSCL

CSCL: An Historical Perspective. by Gerry Stahl, Timothy Koschmann and Daniel Suthers based on a chapter in: R. K. Sawyer (Ed.). (2006). Cambridge Handbook of the Learning Sciences. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press -- with permission of the publisher. This chapter is intended as an introduction to CSCL. It reviews the history, provides numerous references for further study and outlines a direction for future work. The view of CSCL, its origins and its future is very much a particular perspective -- that of the authors. We felt this chapter was worth making available on a global basis, so we had it translated into a number of major world languages (thanks to Nan Zhou, Fei-Ching Chen, Hugo Fuks, Cesar Collazos, Martin Muehlpfordt and Stefan Trausan-Matu):

in American English (pdf) html

in Simplified Chinese (pdf) html

in Traditional Chinese (pdf) html

in Brazilian Portuguese (pdf) html

in Colombian Spanish (pdf) html

in German (pdf) html

in Romanian (pdf) html

in Japanese (pdf) html

These translations have been collected in one volume, which can be downloaded as pdf or for Kindle and can be purchased on-demand as a paperback.

A slightly up-dated version has been published in the second edition of the Cambridge Handbook of the Learning Sciences.
