Abstract

We describe in this paper a model for Computer Supported Collaborative Learning and the corresponding architecture. This model has been designed to take into account the variety of educational activities and cultures. It offers primitives to endusers, mainly the teachers, allowing them to describe a collaborative activity and to regulate it (i.e. modify it dynamycally). It has been implemented within a groupware based on the metaphor of electronic schoolbag, which is used today by more than 40000 users in both University and secondary french schools. Thanks to the model, the developed groupware is flexible and tailorable.
