Task 2: Discussing collaborative working (no more than 1 hour total in several short interactions)

In the small group activity (Task 1) you experience working in an online team. In this task we ask you to reflect on that experience and more broadly the complexities of supporting online groups. What are some of the key ingredients for designing a good online group work activity? What resources need to be in place for online groups to be able to work well? What kinds of support do tutors need to provide? What challenges will online students meet in their group work? How, if at all, are the challenges of group work different online to face-to-face? Please post your reflections on these questions and your experiences of online group work here.
