Abstract

Large-scale cooperation support for learners becomes even more important, when e-Learning is implemented in scalable, open, dynamic and heterogeneous environment. This paper presents how to realize collaborative learning support in distributed learning environments based on grid technology. Our approach fills the existing gap between current cooperative platform and complex, cross-organization infrastructure. We propose the grid architecture for establishing collaborative platform for e-Learning, where grid middleware and CSCW services are provided. A Learning Assessment Grid, abbreviated as LAGrid, is built on top of these services and provides collaborative learning in large-scale cross-organization environment.
