dimensions of variation we have laid out as our current research agenda. We are considering as our refined research agenda for the future to add 2 new dimensions of variation and explore the way that groups of different sizes with participants chosen with matched or unmatched problem- solving styles and with relevant or no subject expertise work together using this new type of distributed computer supported collaborative environment.
