Those who teach online are faced with the challenge of facilitating online interactions and fostering community and collaboration. The authors discuss how to develop, facilitate, and assess online collaborative projects. Techniques are drawn from the literature on asynchronous learning and from the authors' experiences with online collaboration. The authors address the development of a collaborate project from the initial thinking about its place in the course, to the preparation of the students in terms of both technological readiness and orientation to collaborative work. Other essential considerations are group formation, topic selection, definition of project, timeline, peer review, and accountability. Throughout the project the instructor monitors participation, gives timely feedback on quality and content of work in progress, and provides reassurance and support when needed. Reflection and debriefing strategies serve to bring closure to the collaborative experience.
