Harold Jarche finds support for my proposal that 'cooperation' rather than 'collaboration' is more appropriate for descriptions of network-based practice. "Jerome Delacroix provides another confirmatory post on "co-operation" as the suitable term for what we do in networks [in French]. Jerome explains why his site is called Cooperatique and not Collaboratique - collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while co-operation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate." And some people remember that this is not my first pass at this issue: "The question is not whether we can get students to collaborate online - the question is whether we should."
