This paper reports recent findings of a continuing international study that is investigating computer supported collaborative learning processes among a networked learning community. This study presents an experiment conducted to research learning and tutoring processes in three different groups. Each group was presented with a different model to facilitate collaboration using specially designed groupware. We are particularly interested in knowledge construction processes and how participants regulate their collaborative learning. The interaction patterns that are shown in the two presented tables indicate that the groups who used the management roles and progressive enquiry models were more actively engaged in learning and tutoring processes than the group without an additional structure. More discussion amongst the members is dedicated to negotiation and regulation of their task. This paper reports current findings and discusses further prospects for software development.
