Abstract: Feelings of isolation and a lack of interactivity are among the reasons cited for student drop-out in online learning settings like MOOCs. A possible solution is to offer MOOC participants the opportunity to engage in collaborative activities. However, small-group collaboration in MOOCS poses several challenges which may reduce the beneficial effects of collaboration and reduce participants’ satisfaction with both the collaboration process and the course. In this work-in-progress paper, we describe the development of a library of typical problems that may occur during online collaboration in asynchronous, text-based online settings. The library covers the following aspects of collaboration: communication, joint information processing, coordination, and reciprocal interaction. The library was generated in a process by combining a top-down literature search and a bottom-up identification of typical problems in existing collaboration data. The library will be used as a basis for developing intelligent support for student collaboration in online courses.
