Abstract: 
The growing popularity of on-line learning environments is transforming methods and approaches in language learning. For instance, with the use of digital technology, it is no longer necessary for teachers to work alone in the design and
production of their instructional materials. When teachers work in isolation, they often need to spend a lot of effort in producing material that may only have a limited use. This practice can be tiresome and in extreme cases lead to negative outcomes for both teachers and learners.
This paper illustrates how teachers can collaborate in the electronic realm and
explains why digital-age publications benefit from the adoption of production
strategies that add value to on-line teaching and learning processes. By reflecting on our experiences of collaborating at a distance in an English on-line reading comprehension project, we identify a set of strategies for language teachers to employ when designing their own on-line materials that promote collaboration.
