Abstract

In this study, we develop a Web-based learning platform to assist students taking the "Supply Chain Management" course on the Internet. The design is based on Cooperative Learning Theory and the system function models developed by the authors. We also investigate the function utilities required by students who use the platform. The results show that, in descending order, the utility rates of the three function categories are: (1) Functions of Cooperative Learning (e.g., online tutor, assignment discussion room, real-time discussion room, and online assignment hand-in) equal 57%. (2) Functions of Personal Learning (e.g., learning resource sharing, personal learning notes, video instructions, and viewing of peer-learners' assignments) equal 38%. (3) Functions of Web-based Course Evaluation (e.g., online exams and peer review), equal 5%. Based on these results, we propose some concrete suggestions for five aspects of web-based learning, namely, the Learners' Aspect, the Web-based Course Aspect, the Evaluation Aspect, the System Aspect, and the Educators' Aspect.
