Abstract: Collaboration scripts have repeatedly been implemented in CSCL with the aim of improving individual acquisition of domain-specific knowledge and domain-general skills. However, it is a delicate compromise between taking the "freedom from" (i.e., constraining the learners' efforts to self-regulate their learning) and providing the "freedom to" learners (i.e., enabling them to collaborate on a higher level) when implementing CSCL scripts. The study reported here aimed to answer the question whether adaptable scripting would be an effective approach to realize flexibility in scripted CSCL. 54 university students participated in this study which compared three experimental conditions (unscripted CSCL, CSCL with a non-adaptable script, CSCL with an adaptable script). Results showed that the adaptable script improved individual knowledge and skill acquisition compared to the other two conditions.
