Over the past several years, a number of research studies have investigated the application of group support system (GSS) technology to the classroom. The purpose of this paper is to present a framework to guide future studies. A framework is introduced that identifies the contextual, group process, and outcome factors that researchers may wish to consider when designing and interpreting future research studies involving the application of collaborative technology to learning.
