We do not exactly know how electronic discourse sustains collaborative learning that involves problem solving as a teaching and learning strategy. A critical review of current empirical research studies is conducted. It examines how collaborative problem solving can be achieved via on-line discussion, and the quality of these studies in terms of validity and reliability. Its results show that the success of collaboration depends on effective on-line discussions that do not occur automatically. The mixed research approach and the research method of content analysis are more often used. Most studies suffered from a degree of threats to validity and reliability. It concludes that the content of on-line discussion should be studied to understand the process of collaborative learning, and this study should be validated with strategies incorporated into research methodology.
