Abstract
Teamwork has become an increasingly important part of online learning environments. The widespread use of virtual teams in online courses has not been companied by adequate research to address those issues that affected the learning and productivity in virtual teams. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between the nature of computer-mediated communication technology and virtual team learning and creativity from a flow theory perspective. A survey was conducted to the students of several online programs. The findings of this study suggested that flow experience is associated with perceived characteristics of the computer software as well as with team-related creativity and learning outcomes.
