Teaching and learning from one another is one of the most effective ways for learners to acquire proactive learning attitudes. In this study, we propose a new learning support system that encourages mutual teaching and learning by introducing a mechanism that guarantees sustainability. Learners submit articles called “learning-articles” that summarize their own learning and knowledge. The proposed system not only accumulates and publishes these articles but also has a mechanism to encourage the submission of necessary topics. The proposed system has been in operation since the academic year 2020, and it has collected learning-articles across our university’s nine academic disciplines from more than 300 learners. To investigate the effects of sharing learning-articles on education from the learners’ perspectives, a questionnaire was distributed among 25 students.
