This study detects the characteristics of argumentation, the levels of critical thinking, and the problems and advantages of electronic discussion forums in a mixed course with doctorate students. The results show that argumentation was mainly emotional and linear, and that the students reached high levels of critical thinking, and that emotions were present before, during, and after the online forum. Some implications of cognitive and emotional argumentation are discussed, as well as models for critical thinking to achieve collaborative learning online.
