Abstract

A basic condition for efficient computer-supported cooperative learning in higher education is the direct support of computer-mediated communication and computer-supported cooperative work. In this chapter, it will be reasoned why a combination of these features in one system is essential for well-functioning learning management systems (LMS). In addition to theoretical considerations about the link between learning objects, cognition, motivation, social processes, and practice, different e-learning and blended learning projects at the Freie University of Berlin are outlined. Finally, desirable cooperation and collaboration tools for an LMS are presented and related to psychological learning theories.
