    Abstract

    Our study set out to investigate how collaborative learning between pairs of adult subjects solving physics problems with a computer is effected when the subjects are not co‐present but have an audio and computer link only. It also examined how the groups’ gender composition could influence both group productivity and individual learning. This paper reports that all pairs performed significantly better in the audio condition with respect to on‐task problem‐solving measures, and pre‐to post‐test change scores.
