Abstract

The objectives of this research study were 1) to develop the model for web-based collaborative learning with the support of mentoring system for enhancing critical thinking in higher education and 2) to tryout the model for web-based collaborative learning with the support of mentoring system for enhancing critical thinking in higher education. The sample group consisted of 67 Information Technology students from Buriram Rajabhat University who registered in the 4131301 course in the 1st semester of 2015. The research tools included a tool used in model tryout process and a tool for collecting data. The results from the study showed that the developed model comprised 4 elements: 1) principles, 2) objectives, 3) five learning processes (relationship building, problem clarification, discussion, conclusion and suggestions, and awarding), and 4) measurement and evaluation.  The results from the model’s tryout showed that the effectiveness of the computer lessons according to the model was 1.03, the learning achievement and critical thinking of learners with the model were higher than those with normal learning method at the statistical significant level of .05, critical thinking and the learning achievement of the learners with the model had the positive relation ( r = .688) at the moderate level with the statistical significant level of .01, and learners’ satisfaction towards the model was at a high level.
