Stephanie D. Teasley, Jeremy Roschellel, TechSpot, May 20, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"Collaboration is a coo rdinated, synchronous activity that is the result of a continued attempt to construct and maintain a shared conception of a problem... Cooperative work is accomplished by the division of labour among participants, as an activity where each person is responsible for a portion of the problem solving." What's important in collaboration is the creation of a shared model. "Our perspective has characterised collaboration as a process of constructing and maintaining a Joint Problem Space."
