Liang, Hai-Ning; Sedig, Kamran – Interactive Learning Environments, 2009
Interactive learning environments (ILEs) are increasingly used to support and enhance instruction and learning experiences. ILEs maintain and display information, allowing learners to interact with this information. One important method of interacting with information is navigation. Often, learners are required to navigate through the information…

Chu, Hui-Chun; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Chen, Nian-Shing – Interactive Learning Environments, 2009
Although Web 2.0 technologies have been recognized as effective means of conducting group learning activities, a critical and challenging issue of Web 2.0-based learning is the lack of mechanisms for promoting information exchanges and sharing among participating students. To cope with this problem, an intelligent blog system is proposed in this…

So, Hyo-Jeong; Seow, Peter; Looi, Chee Kit – Interactive Learning Environments, 2009
This article examines the potential of mobile computing and Web 2.0 technology to support knowledge building in formal and informal settings. Desktop-based knowledge building tools have limited affordances of supporting one-to-one access, learning "in situ," and seamless integration in and out of school environments. In this initial…

Wang, Qiyun – Interactive Learning Environments, 2009
The constructivist learning environment was designed on three perspectives: pedagogical, social and technological. A group of 24 trainee teachers used the environment and participated in the formative evaluation. Results showed that the trainee teachers liked the design specifications and perceived the learning environment to be useful. The…

Severance, Charles; Hardin, Joseph; Whyte, Anthony – Interactive Learning Environments, 2008
Current Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) are focused very much on meeting the needs of the institution in providing a basic, common technology platform for teaching and learning. However monolithic VLEs are too hard to customize at the individual user level, and evolve far too slowly to meet teaching and learning of users who want their…

van Harmelen, M. – Interactive Learning Environments, 2008
Increasingly, there is a shared understanding that the educational approach driving the development of Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) is one of learner empowerment and facilitation of the efforts of self-directed learners. This approach fits well with concepts of social constructivism, constructionism, and the development and execution of…

Fischer, Frank; Troendle, Pamela; Mandl, Heinz – Interactive Learning Environments, 2003
Up to this point, university education has largely remained unaffected by the developments of novel approaches to web-based learning. The paper presents a principled approach to the design of problem-oriented, web-based learning at the university level. The principles include providing authentic contexts with multimedia, supporting collaborative…
