Abstract

In this paper, we apply peer-to-peer and instant messenger for the augmentation of knowledge sharing in collaboration supported virtual learning communities. We enhance current peer-to-peer and instant messenger with content quality control and social network to further improve content discovery and group discussion. Content found by peer-to-peer is referred to accessible explicit knowledge, while the discussion and interaction details recorded in instant messenger is referred to tacit knowledge. Results of this study demonstrate that with our enhanced mechanism, it can help learners find relevant content as well as knowledgeable collaborators who are willing to share their knowledge.
