This study aims that to reveal reflections and recommendations of students for collaborative working for a distance education course which was given blended. In a 6 week summer course, 105 students participated to this case study. Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected to reveal problems, solutions and communication behaviors and recommendations about collaborative working. Results showed that students prefer to face to face communication to develop project and they expect instant facilitation from instructors. Random assignment is created some problems in terms of communication and motivation of group members. Although in this case students used computer mediated communication with their facilitators in very low rates, they suggested that facilitators should trace each steps of group working. As a result for this case because of habit of face to face communication, students need face to face communication both with their group members and facilitator to group working and motivate their peers.
