    Abstract

    Sharing learning activity in and cross various systems is a prospective approach to implement OLP (Open Learning Process), a paradigm to share the knowledge generated in the learning process. The question is that the systems supporting teaching and learning are always separated and isolated. To implement OLP, firstly a uniform description of learning activity and a protocol to share learning activity in and cross systems are necessary. Secondly, a systematic framework to support learning activity description is also important. In this research, first, we show our vision of OLP by introducing metaphors such as a drop or an ocean of learning activity. Then based on the analysis of web based learning activity through Activity Theory, we propose a learning activity model to describe learning activity. Moreover, a specification of learning activity streams based on Activity Streams specification is introduced. Finally, a prototype system supporting learning activity streams is implemented based on UPS (Ubiquitous Personal Study) platform.
