Collaborative Learning, Metadata, Pedagogy, Collaborative Learning Entity, Metamodel


The goal of this study is to develop collaborative learning entity metadata (CLEM) that represents design, practice, and evaluation of collaborative learning activities. In order to clarify CLEM, the framework or meta-model of collaborative learning should be structured. This paper describes the initial version of CLEM, which is capable of describing collaborative learning not only from a technical standpoint, but also from pedagogical and learning standpoints. Once CLEM has been fully developed, teachers will be able to represent, extract, share, reuse, and exchange their knowledge of collaborative learning activities by using CLEM.
