Online education, as an emerging form of education, provides learners with flexible, convenient and diverse learning opportunities. In online education, collaborative learning is of great significance. However, there are some challenges and dilemmas when learners collaborate in online learning, such as lack of deep interaction, uneven teamwork, deviate from the Topic, and low motivation to participate in collaboration. In this regard, the article proposes some improvement strategies, such as designing more diverse interactive activities, optimizing grouping strategies, improving the consistency of the design and implementation of learning activities, and enhancing the evaluation of learners' individual contributions.
