Abstract

Embracing interactions in computer based learning is a good approach to empowering the effectiveness of knowledge sharing, and the popularity of Web 2.0 applications signals the readiness of applying Web 2.0 technologies to computer supported education. This paper introduces SharK (abbreviation of Sharing Knowledge), a Web 2.0 service infrastructure specifically designed for knowledge sharing. SharK adopts a novel Unified Content Model to abstract various contents inside Web 2.0 service portals, which allows easier legacy data migration, consistent and fine-grained content security control in addition to providing an extensible platform for fast new service portal construction. Besides illustrating the key design considerations, this paper also introduces three real-life Shark-based knowledge sharing Web 2.0 portals, which clearly demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of Web 2.0 portal construction based on SharK
