Activities that require students to collaborate, share solutions, review each others' work, or create materials explicitly for the use of other students have been shown to be beneficial not only to students' learning of the material, but to their reflective, critical and creative skills. This paper presents a snap-shot of tools currently reported as being used to support such collaborative activities in Computer Science education. Basing our analysis on an extensive review of recent Computer Science Education literature, we categorize these tools according to both their form and use while identifying gaps, limitations and opportunities
