This article deals with a group of distance learning student teachers, who, after the course was completed, called themselves 'The Magic Group'. The concept 'magic' refers to the reflective and productive learning process the group members experienced, a process far beyond their individual borders.

The collaborative process was conducted by means of portfolio, peer learning through feedback and LMS (Learning Management System). The aim of the article is to focus on the most important assumptions for the group's successful learning process.
