Exploring Distance Learning Environments: A Proposal for Model Categorization.
Morgado, Eduardo Martins; Yonezawa, Wilson; Reinhard, Nicolau
This article proposes a categorization model for online distance education environments, based on two different aspects: interaction and content. The proposed categorization, which was based on the experience acquired in developing, implementing, and operating different remote training courses, is aimed at providing evidence to help educational professionals in choosing online environments that are more appropriate to their educational goals and strategies. The four quadrants of the distance education virtual environment classification model are described: Information (low interaction and poor content), Self Instruction (low interaction and rich content), Virtual Tutoring (high interaction and low content), and Collaboration (high interaction and rich content). Includes five figures and one table. An appendix lists functionalities of web-based online education environments. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/AEF)
