How To Create a Learning Environment on the Internet, Based on Constructivism and Sociocultural Approaches?
Staupe, Arvid; Hernes, Margrethe Steen
This paper discusses designing learning environments based on the Internet, as seen from a constructivist/situated learning point of view. First, some of the main principles of learning theory are examined. The structuring of virtual learning environments and integrated use of services on the Internet within the following five areas are addressed: (1) presentation/lecture area, including text files, World Wide Web sites, overheads, video, and animation; (2) knowledge area, including help service, FAQs (frequently asked questions); (3) communication area, including computer networks, e-mail, and groupware; (4) working area, including software tools, groupware, and workbook; and (5) private area, including private files, workbook, and personal work/study plan. Tools for developing entirely net-based learning environments, where the resources in the network work together to support the learning process, are presented. A closer look at some models for integrating network-based learning environments and learning organizations/social context are described. The authors' work on a network-based concept that includes administrative tasks is noted briefly. (MES)
