This paper reports results of a mixed method, multiple case study of collaborative problem solving by distance education students. Four groups of students were assigned to solve a multifaceted task and write a comprehensive solution report using the following net-based technologies: synchronous audiographics, synchronous text chat, asynchronous voice conferencing and asynchronous text conferencing. Time on task logs and reflections on group process as well as final assignment marks are compared among the four groups.
