Part 4 - Design an Online Collaborative Environment Plan[edit | edit source]

Instructions[edit | edit source]

Now it’s your turn. Spend the next 5-10 minutes developing your own collaborative learning environment plan for a scenario from your experience.

This plan should be based on an authentic task in your workplace. After reading this page, you will visit the Google Group discussion forum for this topic to post your plan and describe its purpose. Click on the discussion starting with "Welcome..." for a design plan framework and posting instructions. Before you leave the site, review a plan posted by another peer and submit your general assessment of his or her work. Click the thread starting with "Evaluation Procedure..." to obtain a performance checklist and instructions for reviewing someone else's plan.

In addition to peer assessment, a group moderator will evaluate each plan, rate them based on the three main criteria listed in the learning objectives and return the graded plan to each participant.
