Abstract

When a Web-based classroom teacher manages a Web-based distance learning system, there can be a substantial burden of preparation work. Hence, an instructor needs a Web site manager to help him/her use tools to manage the Web-based classroom. In fact, some of the more tedious work can be avoided by using proper collaborative learning strategies. To use collaborative learning strategies on Web, a Web-based classroom teacher can use advanced technology for managing learners' portfolios, controlling learning flow, and constructing collaborative learning activities; and he/she can also refine existing collaborative learning strategies, which reduce the requirements of the advanced technology. Furthermore, refining existing collaborative learning strategies can make it easier to implement them in a Web-based classroom. Although there are methodologies for constructing a Web-based collaborative learning system, none specifically address the possibility of refining collaborative learning strategies to work with Web features. The paper surveys some notable collaborative learning strategies as well as proposing guidelines and recommendations for how a Web-based classroom teacher can refine those strategies for use in a Web-based classroom through our technical perspective.
