An approach is suggested to dynamic organization and evaluation of special project-based collaborative learning (PBCL) environment. The approach provides stimulation and facilitaton of collaborative knowledge building through: construction of temporal sequence of project tasks divided into knowledge-heterogeneous groups for promotion of intensive knowledge building; formation of knowledge-heteregeneous collaborative groups with maximum mutual supplementation of students’ knowledge inside a collaborative group, which causes the need for maximal number of interactions between students; assigning students to perform project tasks, which evokes mutual need for knowledge; planning and evaluation of interactions between the most suitable peer partners for collaboration. The system of adaptive support of PBCL is proposed for implementation of the approach. It intends to to realize computer mediation in the laborious process of dynamic organization and evaluation of virtual PBCL.

Keywords: adaptive support of virtual project-based collaborative learning, dynamic organizing and evaluating of the project-based collaborative learning
