Abstract: Now many people recognize effectiveness of collaborative learning such as group work and group discussion. However, it is very difficult to evaluate those activities objectively and properly in a classroom. The goal of our research is to find out some appropriate models to visualize those students’ activities so that we can evaluate them properly. Thus, we would like to explore two topics. First, we introduce some Japan's current situations of online and blended teaching and learning. Second, we explain our teaching process and theory based on SECI, which is a knowledge-creating model within organizations by Ikujiro Nonaka. We designed some courses based on SECI, which visualizes knowledge creating process in group activities with support of Mahara and moodle. These are online and blended teaching and learning platforms in our virtual university environment.
