The Realization of Interaction in Cognitive Science Network Studies.
Johansson, Tuovi; Ruokamo, Heli
This paper deals with the research of the realization interaction in the Finnish Virtual University's network-based studies of cognitive science in the autumn 2001. This research examines the independent study of cognitive science which occurs through a network and the face-to-face study that takes place in cooperation in a group and the study that occurs in WebCT groups. The research seeks answers to the kind of interaction that promotes network-based studies and what causes a lack of interaction. The data was collected by questionnaires and observation. The results indicated that students considered interaction with the teacher and other students to be more binding than self-directed study. The expectations and biases of students did not always correspond to the objectives of studies and thus have prevented functional interaction in a network. (Author)
