I've done group projects online in the past. We collaborated in a forum, kind of like this one. We also occasionally called each other on the phone. It was not a fun thing. I will never take an online class that requires group projects again.
Why was this not a fun thing? Too many cooks in the kitchen so to speak, or just a pain to access and go through all that? Just wondering, so I will know to steer clear with group projects.
I don't like group projects in general but doing them with distance education was especially painful. So I guess it was a combo of too many cooks and trying to get everybody to be able to talk at the same time. When 4 people were available, 1 wouldn't be. Then you would have those who want to control the group and call you every 5 minutes because you didn't answer their last email yet.
