Section 1 of this chapter argues that among the various forms of computer-supported collaborative learning telecollaboration is particularly well suited to raise awareness of online modes and meaning making and to foster the development of multimodal literacy. In section 2, the 2008 telecollaborative pilot project is presented, with information provided on the project framework, the participants and the methodological approach. Section 3 is dedicated to the description of project Task 1, in particular the approach to task design and the outcome. Next, the main issues that arose during the implementation of Task 1 are discussed. And finally section 5 draws this chapter to a conclusion with a summary of the insights gained and the amendments made for the current iteration of the project (2009).
