Collaborative Education Practice in a Data Structure E-Learning Course

Authors: Gang Chen, Ruimin Shen


This paper presented a collaborative education model, which consists four parts: collaborative teaching, collaborative working, collaborative training and interaction. Supported by an e-learning platform, collaborative education was practiced in a data structure e-learning course. Data collected shows that most of students accept collaborative education. This paper goes one step attempting to determine which aspects appear to be most important or helpful in collaborative education.

Keywords: Education, data structures, Collaborative Work
