Development of An Algorithm for Groupware Modeling for A Collaborative Learning
Keywords:Group forming, algorithm, collaborative learning, mobile terminal, debate system, groupware
AbstractThis paper reports an algorithm for forming groups of students with regard to a computer system for collaborative learning designed to give a cue for debate utilizing mobile terminals. With this system, questionnaires which should be used as the seeds for debates are prepared in advance on the Web and all students attending the class answer to the questionnaires on the Web through their mobile terminals. Following this, the computer assigns students to appropriate groups based on the results of answers, and transmits each of answers and information of the group member to terminals of the students. Based on the information, students form groups and each group starts debate. In this study, system composition is dealt with first and algorithm for forming groups using answers by the students is discussed.
