Abstract—With the rapid development of Facilitated Collaboration in Collaboration Engineering field, there are more and more applications of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) in the university undergraduate education worldwide. Collaborative team realized the significance of using collaborative technology and Facilitated Collaboration methods to improve working efficiency. In this paper, we propose a collaboration process for undergraduate teaching based on CSCL environment by means of Design Science Research, Case Study and the application of thinkLets method - which is an important theory of Facilitated Collaboration, aiming at providing an advanced and efficient method to improve the collaboration process for undergraduate teaching and student teams. We have taken a two-stage questionnaire and interviews to the case of undergraduate participants in a China university. The results validated the designed process. We also have many findings such as it helps improving working efficiency, achieving learning goals and building trust.
