Abstract: This study analyzes the regulation strategies applied by five groups of students, during the process of joint construction of meaning in a cooperative task in a virtual university within an asynchronous communication context. The study was performed within a subject taught at a Master in E-learning program in which students applied the technique of case study for solving two different tasks. These tasks were based on written argumentation, supported by virtual discussions and its completion was defined through a written report. Based on a review of the theory and the current status of research, the concept of regulation in its social and cognitive dimensions are delineated; where the dimensions interweave during the process of joint construction of meaning. Through a case study methodology and by means of discourse analysis three modes of regulation are identified: self-, external and co-regulation all present during cooperative tasks. Then the types of language involved in the process of joint construction of meaning are categorized and the resultant interactions described. Subsequently, the learning effects of the groups are evaluated through their written reports. Lastly, four models of interaction, that reflect the regulation of learning at different stages of cooperative work in a virtual asynchronous communication context, are identified.
