The purpose of this study is to explore the architecture for a collaborative learning environment, in which individual learning and collaborative learning are smoothly connected. We proposed a composition model of a collaborative workplace, and a management model for action in the collaborative learning space and the state of learning context. Based on the ides, in this paper we describe a Contents-Sharable mechanism between a private workplace and a collaborative workplace.
