Abstract
Collaborative learning is a kind of group learning mode where members of group learn any concept
or topic through communication and discussions. Current researches on collaborative learning
paid little attention to the functionalities of group members. In order to solve this problem, this paper
utilizes a Learning Blog (LBlog) to share experience and viewpoints of group members, and
achieve learning goals together in the end. The LBlog also integrates Learning Management
System (LMS) to manage the group members’ profiles to evaluate the learners’ learning efficiency.
Our initial experiments with the LBlog indicate that it is an useful educational tool to support
collaborative learning.
