The CORAL (Collaborative On-line Research and Learning) model, pedagogy for the use of technology in the classroom, was used by students to learn about group processes and other social psychological topics. Students were enrolled in two different courses at two different universities, and randomly assigned to teams with the assignment of developing and producing a collaborative project. Teams consisted of both same site and distant site members. Students utilized Web Boards, SMART Boards, chat rooms, video-conferencing, file managers, webbased calendars, and email to communicate to other team members to complete course assignments. As students completed assignments they were also required to observe and write about their own group processes in a collaborative analysis. Students learned both course content (group processes and other social psychological concepts) and additional technology and interpersonal skills through the use of this model. CORAL Pedagogy
