Abstract


  • Mobile cloud-based learning is a novel trend that allows collaborative

    learning to happen among distributed learners, but it still lacks of mechanisms

    to enhance teamwork performance. Combining the features of the cloud,

    we have identified a learning flow based on Kolb team learning experience,

    executed by cloud-hosting learning management systems in conjunction with

    our newly designed system, ‘Teamwork as a Service (TaaS)’. Each of TaaS’s

    five web services aims to organize a certain type of learning activities, providing

    learners with an introduction, a ‘jigsaw classroom’, schedule planning, and

    mutual supervision during the whole collaborative learning process. In particular,

    enabling a rational group mechanism realized by the simulated annealing

    method, TaaS is able to allocate learners to their appropriate tasks in order to

    give their best performance. We also introduce details of the implementation of

    TaaS over the Amazon cloud.
