Abstract

Abstract: The current study examined student perspectives on peer collaboration and competition in an online teacher education course. Using a questionnaire and interviews as data sources, the study sought to explore the extent to which students felt their computer conference interactions were collaborative and competitive. An analysis of the data revealed that while students do value the opportunity to work together with their classmates online, they do not they do not necessarily consider their interactions as true collaboration. Moreover, students reported that they often felt there were instances of peer competition within the conferencing environment.
