Abstract—Collaborative learning is a kind of group learning mode where members of group learn any concept or topic through communication and discussions. Current researches on collaborative learning paid little attention to the functionalities of group members. In order to solve this problem, this paper utilizes a Learning Blog (LBlog) to share experience and viewpoints of group members, and achieve learning goals together in the end. The LBlog also integrates Learning Management System (LMS) to manage the group members’ profiles to evaluate the learners’ learning efficiency. Our initial experiments with the LBlog indicate that it is an useful educational tool to support collaborative learning.
