With the rapid development of E-Learning, collaborative learning is important for teaching, learning methods and strategies. Studies over the years shown that students had actively and interactively involved in a classroom discussion to gain their knowledge. Collaborative learning is able to accommodate the situation, where student can exploit and share their resources and skills by asking for information, evaluating, monitoring one another's information and idea. Therein, the activity allowing

In this paper, we introduce question answering for collaborative learning with domain knowledge and answer quality predictor. By using answer quality predictor, the quality of answers could be determined. On the other side, domain knowledge could be used as knowledge about the environment in which the target information operates as a reference. Through the process of collaborative learning, the usage knowledge base will be enriched for future question answering. Further, not only the student could get answers form others but also provided by the system.
