Abstract—Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) tool adoption is slow and challenging when compared to the dissemination of simpler content delivery systems. The lack of technical and pedagogical expertise, concrete training, and effective support for teachers are some reasons that explain the current situation. This paper proposes a technological approach for making CSCL practice, evaluation and dissemination easier. In this approach, a powerful workflow-enabled web platform hosts virtual communities of volunteer teachers and CSCL specialists. The platform supports participants for designing collective learning processes that integrate CSCL tools, executing and tutoring them, analyzing their results and debating all related technical and pedagogical issues.

Index Terms—CSCL, dissemination, evaluation
