"This book makes a great shot at disentangling the challenge of the diversity of learning technologies and their intricate association with pedagogical approaches. The terms used by the book -- combining, uniting and interrelationships -- in some ways underplay the major challenges it poses. Have a good read of it -- and most importantly try out some ideas." Gilly Salmon, Professor of E-learning & Learning Technologies, Beyond Distance Research Alliance "This [book] represents a significant collection of papers which, I am sure, will help inform the development of an online pedagogy for problem-based learning." Michael Prosser, Director Research and Evaluation, Higher Education Academy "The studies presented in this book are evidence informed and theoretically framed in ways that promise to advance our understanding of these complex areas. This collection will be an invaluable read for anyone involved in PBL and/or e-learning in higher education.

It includes articles of relevance to those interested in both theory and practice in this area. It attempts to answer such important current questions as: how can groups with shared goals work collaboratively using the new technologies? What problems can be expected, and what are the benefits? In what ways does online group work differ from face-to-face group work? And what implications are there for both educators and students seeking to work in this area?
