Abstract

Knowledge sharing is important to students in their learning process. However, students come from different background and cultures, speak different languages and work or study in different ways. They need to use many websites or tools to achieve the aim of their knowledge sharing. All these are problematic and time-consuming to students. Therefore, an integrated tool would be preferable to overcome these issues and thus, promote knowledge sharing between them. This paper presents the literature review, survey and interview on which the design of an integrated knowledge sharing tool, Mybook, was based as well as the user testing of Mybook with students.
