[Title] Development of the Information Infrastructure for Collaborative Learning Using Learning Log

[abstract]

This study develops an information infrastructure for ubiquitous learning using log data of learning experiences in the everyday life as the next generation of e-Learning. Learning log supports the acquisition of the skill and knowledge collaboratively by capturing video of learning experiences and sharing them with other learners. This system provides a learner appropriate information contents in the situation around the learner such as the place or time and harmonizes with the learner’s environment and his/her needs and support a learning process. We will practice and evaluate this system at Universities.

[What is ubiquitous learning?]

The research of ubiquitous learning is a cross road between research on educational technology and learning sciences and research on ubiquitous computing. CSUL (Computer Supported Ubiquitous Learning) is defined as a technology-enhanced learning environment supported by ubiquitous computing
technologies such as mobile devices, RFID tags, and wireless sensor networks. CSUL includes learning in the real and virtual world, by providing information on personal mobile devices in variety of learning spaces, e.g., classroom, library, museum, and home.

[What is ubiquitous learning log?]

Ubiquitous Learning Log is defined a digital record of what a learner has learned in the daily life using ubiquitous technologies. Ubiquitous Learning Log system supports to capture and reuse past learning experiences as ubiquitous learning log.
