Abstract

Collaborative learning is an essential aspect of the learning process but students are often faced with various issues such as unfair workloads assigned between members, not finishing assigned tasks on time, overly passive members who do not pull their own weight and overly active members who do not allow others to contribute. In this paper, we propose an adaptive collaborative learning system that focuses on improving two major aspects in collaborative learning, communication and project management, by providing advanced features as well as adaptive recommendations. By improving the communication and project management in group projects, students can learn more effectively in such collaborative settings which again improves their learning experiences overall.
