This chapter describes some tools that can be used for online student collaboration. By avoiding the logistical problems of getting a group of busy students together at the same time and place, online tools such as Google Docs provide several advantages over other methods of document sharing. The chapter attempts to tease out the conditions under which synchronous or asynchronous forms of collaboration work best, and concludes by briefly sharing other collaboration tools such as wikis, blogs, and social networking sites.

Keywords:   student collaboration, student interaction, online learning, Google Docs, wikis, blogs, social networking site
