Interaction Online: Above And Beyond The Requirements Of Assessment, Meg O'Reilly, Diane Newton Jan 2001

Interaction Online: Above And Beyond The Requirements Of Assessment, Meg O'Reilly, Diane Newton

Centre for Teaching and Learning

Today’s literature is filled with new paradigms for learning, specifically in relation to the increasing adoption of computer-mediated techniques for interactive learning. In many cases, learning may now be enhanced through the experience of a shared online environment for critical discussion, knowledge building and the establishment of supportive social communities.

This paper presents some findings and explores the impact of the emergence of a student-centred social learning environment.
