Zviel-Girshin, Rina; Rosenberg, Nathan – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2005
This paper presents a novel concept--a Web search environment as an interactive learning environment for graduation projects. The paper addresses the question of an appropriate learning environment for writing graduation projects in universities: Can it be defined? What should it be? How should it look? How and when should it be used? The premise…

Lee, Miyoung; Kim, Dong-Sik – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2005
Web-based collaborative Problem-Based Learning (PBL) environments have great potential for learner improvement in solving ill-structured problems in practical situations. Web-based environments, however, offer learners relatively few chances to solve problems through face-to-face interactions compared to traditional classrooms, thereby making it…

Aegerter-Wilmsen, Tinri; Hartog, Rob; Bisseling, Ton – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2003
An important learning goal of a molecular biology curriculum is the attainment of a certain competence level in experimental design. Currently, undergraduate students are confronted with experimental approaches in textbooks, lectures and laboratory courses. However, most students do not reach a satisfactory level of competence in the designing of…

Gerosa, Marco Aurelio; Fuks, Hugo; Lucena, Carlos – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2003
In this paper an analysis is made about how awareness in digital learning environments relates to communication, coordination and cooperation and, consequently, collaboration. A collaboration model, where awareness occupies a central position, is presented. The awareness elements of the AulaNet environment are also analyzed, seeking to identify…
