Learner participation is a workable direction for educational circles, since the study effectiveness can be advanced by participating, interacting and sharing among all participants. However, there is a serious challenge in terms of mutual communication while applying learner participation to the e-Learning environment. To solve the problem, Chao et al. proposed a LRP-Blog system derived from the well-established Blog mechanism. In their scheme, the learner’s effort in familiarizing himself or herself with the platform operations can be minimal because the Blog is currently one of the most popular activities on the Internet. In their system, however, the content reusability is not carefully considered so that the teacher cannot adjust the content following the learner’s real responses. Therefore, knowledge management (KM) is introduced in this paper to conduct collaborative intelligence in the LRP-Blog system. In this improved scheme, learners can translate and systemically offer feedback regarding the received learning content to the e-Learning system. The content is precisely adaptable and reusable in the KM-based LRP-Blog e-Learning system, thus reducing the teacher’s unnecessary maintenance of study contents.
