As the World Wide Web (the Web) become popular, increasing number of distance learning systems are built on the Web. Yet, Instructors must onerously write complex programs to manage students' learning behavior in a web based collaborative learning system. In addition, the instructor should prevent a learner from reading prohibited material, e.g. reading other groups' work result before deadline. Therefore, this investigation devises a web site system that allows instructors to regulate desired collaborative learning models. According to the regulated learning model, an instructor support system is also devised to automatically monitor the learning activities, control the learning actions, and generate notification information to guide learners to learn concepts in an intended collaborative manner. Consequently, an instructor can easily and quickly construct a web based collaborative learning system that supports a desired collaborative learning model.
