I practically faced the importance of many advantages of this kind of learning and some disadvantages... ' 'Collaboration is a very important issue in e-learning, It makes the person learn how to deal with other, respect others points of view, respect the group word, discover new skills in his/herself. my point of view is 'The more collaboration between students the course contains the more successful the course will be'.' 'Experience in non face-to-face collaboration. I now feel I am in a better position to recommend and help future e-students with online collaboration.' 'face-to-face workshop was a lot better. we communicate together better. I think in online learning we should get a chance to meet the tutor even once on the whole course it makes a difference' 'I realize the way I could use when I would like to formulate a group assignment with my students' Slide19:  More information about the project visit the MVU’s website www.med-vu.org Thank you for your attention
