Abstract: This paper places the issue of online teaching in a collaborative perspective by (1) analyzing the extent to which various online technologies have changed and affected education, especially teaching and (2) considering the benefit and potential of current online collaboration tools for sharing and communally constructing knowledge and experience. We discuss the requirements of online teacher collaboration, describe how web-based teaching designs can advance the development of collaboration among teachers, and review specific tools and designs such as Computer Supported Collaboration, Online Discussion and Teaching Community, Group Decision Support System, EdTech Leaders Online, NINTER, etc.
