AbstractInformation technology and Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) has been applied into postgraduate teaching by many researchers. The sense of student teamwork and the quality of teaching are enhanced rapidly. In this study, we have applied facilitated collaboration methods into the CSCL education field to solve problems occurring in the teamwork of postgraduate students’ computer supported collaborative learning. We have designed a collaboration process for postgraduates for their collaborative work. A longitudinal case study has also been conducted in a China university with the application of our designed process. Our aim is to provide a more efficient method of collaboration that helps improve teaching quality, the efficiency of postgraduate student teamwork and motivate the students to convert their knowledge.
