Abstract

This paper presents an exploratory pedagogical usability assessment of The Little Library, a digital library for collaborative open content development in learning environments. By taking into account various aspects of constructivist learning, activity theory, and pedagogical usability, this study provides a model for how a digital resource sharing library might allow for social construction of knowledge among learners in a community via peer-to-peer resource sharing, and seeks to evaluate the pedagogical usability of this technology, situated in multiple online college courses centered on teaching computer science. This project is still underway, but early pilot study findings suggest that collaborative learning could be enhanced by use of just such a digital resource-sharing library.
