Abstract

In this paper, we examine the process of incorporating online collaborative learning (OCL) in an undergraduate ICT education course in a Malaysian tertiary classroom that emphasizes conceptual change through advancing from the idea generating phase, through an idea organizing phase to intellectual convergence, and involved student-centered learning activities through establishing online intra and inter-group collaborative discussions. Using qualitative research design, six educators with online collaborative learning experience in ICT education courses were interviewed. As expected, educators revealed the importance of OCL in helping them to improve their teaching and learning in ICT education course. However, some concerns and challenges of OCL were also raised and suggestions for effectively using OCL are provided.
