This is a fairly good, and simple, article that covers the basics of collaborative learning. Using bullet points to define some of the topics, and linkable headings allowing for easy navigation, it explores the topic in an easy to follow format. By giving examples of how to create various group projects, it also clarifies the process and would make it less daunting to integrate group projects into your own classroom.
