title COMPUTER SUPPORTED COOPERATIVE WORK AND ITS IMPLICATION TO E-LEARNING
summary The use of computer technologies in groups’ activities goes under the name Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). CSCW is a field that covers anything to do with computer support for activities in which more than one person is involved. Software and hardware products providing support for CSCW are called “Groupware,” and the branch of this discipline considering the support computers can provide group of learners with takes the name of “Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL).” When supporting collaborative reflections and discussions, computers provide a support for communication known as “Computer Mediated Communications (CMC).” Furthermore, since in the academic and educational world, knowledge artifacts, as well as annotations and discussions usually take the form of writing, we cannot omit to consider the factors related to “Computer Supported Collaborative Writing (CSCWriting).” Finally, since the advent of the Internet and World Wide Web has changed greatly the technological landscape we will consider its influences and relations with respect to groupware technologies. Thus, this paper takes both a reflective and analytical approach in looking at all these groupware technologies with intent of finding its implication to learning or modern learning (e-learning).
