Yugyung Lee, Quddus Chong
2003 Interacting with computers  
The CoBL framework is based on (1) agents to manage individual learners and communities of learners; (2) a shared data model for integrating heterogeneous communities; (3) a component-oriented development  ...  Distributed multi-agent technology (Lange et al., 1997) is employed in the system architecture to support communication and a shared data model is used for integrating heterogeneous communities.  ...  Conclusion We have introduced a Community-Based Learning (CoBL) framework of collaborative learning for geographically distributed and diverse learners.  ...
