Abstract

While networked education systems move at a very fast pace recent years, efficiency and quality of such education model receive much attention. On the basis of networked co-learning system establishment and experience in a large famous university, the authors present criteria to evaluate the quality of education and propose a learning action analysis method for the evaluation. Such method can be used to indicate the status of collaboration in co-learning environment and find out the potential problem during the learning progress.
