Grid and Peer-to-Peer middleware for Cooperative Learning Environments


This paper presents the work done by the research group of the Open University of Catalonia within the coordinated project towards the definition of adequate grid and peer-to-peer middleware for cooperative learning environments. The main results of our research consist in designing a layered framework for modelling online collaborative learning interactions which in turns leads to the development of a computational platform, called Collaborative Learning Purpose Library (CLPL), that can be used as a basis for the development of Collaborative Learning applications that achieve an efficient event (group activity) information management. To that end, we developed a Grid approach in order to increase the efficiency of processing event log files. Finally, we developed a middleware architecture, called LaCOLLA, that follows the peer-to-peer paradigm and can be used to build collaborative applications that provide general purpose collaborative functionalities while it pays special attention to the autonomy of its members and to self-organization of the components of the infrastructure. All these results were reflected in several publications in international journals, refereed conferences, as well as participations to new European projects.
