    Many peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have been widely used for file sharing. A peer acts both as a content provider and a consumer, and is granted autonomy to decide what content, with whom, and when to share. Is a P2P network an ideal vehicle for information sharing in collaborative learning? This study adopts the theory of planned behavior as a basis to study the sharing behaviors on a P2P network. ...

    Current e-learning environments do not provide sufficient support for group collaboration. The absence of the visual identification of the users makes effective collaboration in e-learning very difficult. This paper argues that virtual worlds (VW) possess the necessary tools to foster effective group collaboration for e-learning initiatives. The use of avatars, the support of verbal and non-verbal...

    Collaboration technologies often provide benefits to teams working together to achieve a common goal. Such technologies may be abandoned, however, if users are dissatisfied with the work practices that they support. Goal attainment has been identified as a key antecedent to satisfaction with technology supported collaboration. We examine the theoretical relationship between perceived changes in th...
