In comparison with the traditional learning, the CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) represents a combination of didactics and informatics approaches. This requires researchers to solve an additional design of specific educational software and suitable ICT infrastructure as was presented at previous ICL Conferences by the authors. This contribution describes a continuous progress under the umbrella of the research on technology-enhanced learning; and how the ICT integration is modelled for the collaborative writing and activities when using an educational beta-software BIKE(E)/WPad. The practical experiences are demonstrated with some examples of how the WPad is applied to the CSCL issues, in off-line mode or shared virtual space.
