Internet based collaboration tools are increasingly being used in information systems courses. This study reports on the results of one such implementation at Lawrence Technological University. Using a sample of 51 students, the researcher explores three hypotheses. First, students in a class with electronic collaboration will work on course material more days during the week than those without. Second, students will perceive that quiet peers can more freely express themselves. Third, students in a course with electronic collaboration will perceive a greater gain in their Internet skills compared to those in a course without collaboration. The researcher supported his second hypothesis.
