A learning activity in which learners themselves create questions in a collaborative manner is regarded as more effective for improved understanding of learning contents than mere question solving. In this study, authors attempted to perform programming education using a question-posing activity in which learners create questions on Moodle, a Learning Management System (LMS), using collaborative question-posing environments. Learners ask each other questions they have created. This paper presents an outline of collaborative question-posing environments, contents of lesson practice, and the transition of learner's capability and consciousness as revealed by a questionnaire survey.
