Abstract

A recent challenge in distant distributed learning courses is to establish effective collaboration in small teams. Team work in such courses often has to take place asynchronously, which puts additional requirements on communication and coordination. This article describes an ongoing project in which we analyze the dynamics of virtual student teams located in different Universities by examining their Trello activity. The students work together in a project where they need to propose a solution for a business challenge. On the basis of their Trello activity we aim to characterize different patterns of team work in geographically dispersed teams to better understand how collaboration in virtual students teams develops over time. These insights can be used to detect ineffective team dynamics and to generate interventions that promote better collaboration.
