INTEREST BASED GROUP MANAGEMENT MECHANISMS FOR E-LEARNING DESIGN USING THE PEER-TO-PEER TECHNOLOGIES

Surya Bahadur Kathayat, Nandana Rajatheva

Abstract

Traditional client-server based e-Learning architecture has many limitations. There is the overhead in a single learning server and inefficient use of resources. There is a lack of real-time interactive ness among learning group members therefore learning is not effective. There is also difficulty in the collaborative work because learners may have different interest, may feel lonely and may leave the system as well. Synchronous, any time and any where, and interactive e-Learning architecture where every learner in the learning group can contribute their resources like in traditional class-room based system, is the requirement of next generation e-Learning architecture. In this paper we purpose novel mechanisms for next generation e-Learning architecture using alternative technologies, peer-to-peer technologies. The proposed framework is based on P2P architecture for scalability, robustness, efficient sharing of resources and interactivity. Purposed system also incorporate efficient and reliable interest based e-Learning grouping and management mechanisms in the top of application layer. Such Interest based interactive P2P based group management mechanisms for e-Learning will combine the tools that are already available, independent of the installed infrastructure and offer a great deal of potential for workgroup collaboration, communities of practice, and self-directed learning.
