This paper discusses the application of Extensible Learning Environment with Courseware Object Architecture (ELECOA), an extensible learner-adaptive system, to a collaborative learning environment. ELECOA is designed to provide a learning environment supporting both function extensibility and content reusability. To achieve this goal, ELECOA introduces the concept of a "courseware object", which is a program module that is used to incrementally implement various educational functionalities. On the basis of this concept, a self-learning environment has been implemented that is fully compliant with the SCORM 2004 specification. This paper describes the results of an investigation into a collaborative learning environment based on the Learning Design specification within the ELECOA framework.
