This thesis examines the development of a new Collaborative Instructional Systems Design (CISD) model to facilitate the development of collaborative learning applications, specifically in the context of Large-Scale Shared Digital Spaces (LSSDS). The CISD model provides interdependent phases, sub-phases and three new taxonomies, to guide designers through a process that assists them in identifying collaborative opportunities through the analysis of learners, the content and the collaborative tasks involved. These three new taxonomies complement Bloom’s Learning Taxonomy and have been designed with collaboration and collaborative learning in mind.
