A distributed Web-based learning community (DisWBLC) based on knowledge sharing for college students has been constructed, implemented and evaluated. The system helps students form a virtual learning community through Web-based learning, which they can use to facilitate learning and growth, Ultimately, they would like to accomplish the goals of knowledge sharing, resource sharing, information exchange, experience interchange and opinion interchange. Both a point accumulation mechanism and a Web-based learning record have been the features of the DisWBLC system, which stimulates student involvement by allowing them to know about the performance and involvement of themselves and their peers. Most students agree that the community does help them learn more and faster, and most students also confirm that the overall operation and implementation of the system is quite good.
