Abstract [en]

This paper reports upon a collaborative learning

trial conducted in 2002 between students at Auckland

University of Technology New Zealand and Uppsala

University Sweden.

The trial design included an initial phase in which virtual

groups became acquainted, using different modes of cybericebreaker,

and a subsequent phase with a common task

involving group decision making - evaluating and ranking

the different icebreaker experiences.

The software used in the trial comprised 1) a custom

developed web-based groupware database, and 2) a Java

3D application, employing configurable avatars, which

could be manipulated in a virtual world. Each of these

applications supported icebreaking activities intended to

establish trust between virtual group members, the latter in

3D mode, and the former in 2D mode.

The trial process and the software are initially outlined. The

evaluation strategy, and approaches to data analysis are

then discussed, and the paper concludes with a report of

preliminary findings from the trial.
