A Fundamental Study for Grouping Formation Module Based on Personality Information.
Hishina, Masateru; Okada, Roberto; Ogasawara, Tomoya
Many concepts, methods, and technologies regarding computer support in collaborative environments have been proposed. It is important to take into account human relations in collaborative learning environments, where personality plays a central role. However, it is not easy to build human relations in Web-based education (WBE), because there are some problems in computer-mediated communication. To overcome such problems, this paper proposes the concept of personality information for awareness (PIA), which represents information for self-awareness/analysis, self-disclosure, person awareness/analysis and person perception. The authors are designing a PIA-based system, called PIAGET (Personality Information for Awareness applied to Group learning in Web-based Education/Training Support system), which supports human relations building for collaborative learning in WBE. This paper focuses on sub-systems for self-awareness/analysis, consisting of functions, such as the YG test module and the Grouping Formation module. (Author)
