Review: Collaborating Online: Learning Together in Community

Collaborating Online: Learning Together in Community Collaborating Online: Learning Together in Community by Rena M. Palloff
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting book. It's more geared toward practitioners than researchers. I'd recommend this as a a design "cookbook" companion. The thing that has really struck me with this book is that the authors use the term 'collaboration' to refer to anything that involves multiple people working together.  Collaboration as a distinct meaning, and there is quite a spectrum of terms available for people working together.  I don't think all of the use-cases and approaches described are necessarily 'collaborative' but they can be.  I guess the optimist would see all of this as collaboration.
