We conducted a meta-review of the computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) literature. This literature included a rich array of methodologies, theoretical and operational definitions, and collaborative models. However, the literature lacked an overall framework for reporting important design and research details. This paper highlights key findings from our systematic review. The paper: (a) presents the array of definitions, tools, and supports researched in the CSCL literature and (b) proposes standards for reporting collaborative models, tools, and research. These standards, which have implications for both the CSCL and computersupported collaborative work areas, have potential to build a shared language upon which cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration may be based.
