A qualitative analysis of six online groups lasting fifteen weeks was done to develop functional communication categories and constructs. Study indicates differences in student ability to use the listserv for decision-making discussions. Students adapted familiar communication strategies and invented new ones to complete an action research project. The group judge by the facilitators as producing the best outcome product demonstrated more use of group member validation and critical thinking skills than other groups. Participants demonstrated a "democratic" discussion method that shortened the give and take of discussion. Members utilized "place statements" as a substitute for body language. Members avoided conflict by substituting softening statements, the democratic discussion process, and ignoring ideas they did not want to support.
