Abstract: This study examines the support of argumentation in collaborative task solving in videoconferencing. In particular, it investigates the effects of a script (which supported the collaboration) and a content scheme (which fostered the focusing on the content) on transactivity in argumentation and on justifications of single arguments in the learning discourse and task solutions. Learners were asked to learn a theory individually before working on a task cooperatively. Altogether, 52 triads were randomly assigned to one of four conditions in a 2 (with/without script) x 2 (with/without content scheme)-factorial design. To measure the effects of the intervention, the argumentation in the learning discourse and in the task solutions was analyzed. Results show no effects of the script on transactive reactions, but small effects of the content scheme. The content scheme also influenced the construction of arguments with justifications positively. Justifications in task solutions were supported by script and content scheme.
