When the courses were designed for the online Masters Degree in Educational Technology at Northern Arizona University, they were designed with various approaches that require collaboration among the students. This approach in online course design was based on research in designing effective online learning environments and on constructivist learning philosophies of the faculty. This need for collaboration that seems to be so vital for online environments and the general inclusion of this technique in the courses for this degree brings up two very key question: Do online learners have certain profiles that would make collaborative learning a less desirable technique for them? Are we forcing them into an instructional technique that they find exceptional difficult and undesirable? This paper reports on a initial research project that begins to shed light on these two questions.
