Abstract
In this study, a method to construct a collaboration environment is proposed. In this environment,
users can annotate any web pages. Our method has advantages such as (1) the system
requirement is adaptable, i.e. it is available on various operating systems and web browsers, (2)
annotations can be made up with images, and (3) users can browse annotations of others, etc.
Utilizing our system, users can create contents, harness collective intelligence, and get rich
experience. Also, we will propose a way to utilize this method in web-based learning and how to
enhance its efficiency.
