Abstract:


e-Learning grid is an emerging branch of education that offers innovative learning experiences coupled with collaborative technologies. The advantages of elearning grid are improved scalability, interoperability, availability, and creation of new possibilities for future e-learning development. e- Learning grid also provides educational opportunities at different levels by enabling access to a large amount of software and hardware resources. This paper presents the development of e-learning based on a computer-supported collaborative learning approach in a grid computing environment for integrated circuit and microelectromechanical system design activities. The design challenge is to develop new platform and architectures for e-learning in grid computing environments among consortium members in the community of a university.
