Collaborate to Clarify - How does this relate to online learning?

Two of the largest objections to online learning is students isolation and beliefs that students do not learn to communicate or work with others.  iNACOL online learning standards highlight the need for this in their standards with: “ The course provides opportunities for appropriate instructor-student and student-student interaction to foster mastery and application of the material and a plan for monitoring that interaction.” 

How can we provide opportunities to collaborate online AND involve students in deeper learning activities?
