Abstract

Nowadays, educational technology is getting more important for the learning environment. Much research has been done to investigate the effectiveness of e-learning and development of collaborative activities. It is thus viable to develop a web based system so that collaborative activities between users can take place. This means that users can collaborate in doing assignments and projects. In this study the web based system and results from its evaluation are described. The requirements for the web based system are gathered via interviews and surveys. This resulted in the identification of tools and features suitable for collaborative learning which forms the attributes of the system. The evaluation of the system is carried out via questionnaires distributed to learners and teachers after they used the system. Statistical analysis carried out on the collected data revealed that the respondents all agreed to the system being suitable for collaborative learning. The proposed model Lotfi VCL (Lotfi Virtual Collaborative Learning) gives an application of the tools and features of collaborative learning software suitable for learners' and teachers' collaborative activities. The study concludes by highlighting the research contributions and future enhancements of the system.
