Over the past 20 years, computer-based training software has become increasingly successful at addressing the learning needs of individuals. Yet, the problems we face in meeting the needs of learning groups continue to be a challenge, both on line and in the classroom. As Webb and Palincsar (1996) explain, studying group learning involves much more than studying a synthesis of individual behaviors:
