Book: Creativity and Discovery in the University Writing Class
Chapter: 16. Online Writing as a Discovery Process: Synchronous Collaboration
This study aims to conduct a preliminary exploration of the use of online collaborative writing software in the classroom, asking not what this software does but rather what informed writing teachers and learners might be able to do with it to develop resourceful, confident, and creative writers. It will also consider the possibility that it might in fact be better sometimes to do without it.
