This paper explains that cooperative learning (CL) promotes the growth and sustenance of situational settings that support and instigate the students to work together for a similar goal in similar conditions with elements of individual responsibility and group cooperation having equal weight. This proposed case study, the author relates, measures the results attained after the implementation of a unit development project on an online cooperative learning component. The paper also details the Johnson, Johnson, and Johnson-Houbec's five methodologies in which cooperative learning can take place.

From the Paper:

"Interpersonal and small-group proficiencies include individual characteristics like listening to all members, mutual decision-making, allocating and taking liability, a two-way response structure, and shared support. These can be instigated in the students by developing methods where the children can work cooperatively and in a united manner. This will be adopted by the students after they have been divided into groups and the teacher would be assigned to supervise their daily reports on the progress being made."
