Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is the highlight in the computer and education area. U.S. Virtual math teams (Virtual Math Teams, Referred to as VMT) project’s main studying purpose is the computer supported group cognition, its collaborative learning environment is a typical environment.
