Abstract

Interest in Web-based collaboration is growing within many academic institutions. We are seeing a wide range of collaborative tools being used in many different areas, including teaching and learning, research and support. Collaborative tools appear to have tremendous potential. However the diversity of applications and application areas is raising several strategic challenges within institutions. This paper outlines barriers to widespread adoption of collaborative tools and argues for strategic thinking in this area.
