This article examines the design approaches possible with modern views of learning and the outcomes being achieved. It speculates that new types of design dialogues are impor-tant if the products developed are to effectively combine the skills of both the educationalist and the technical expertise of other members of the development team. In the design pro-cess while most models focus on the learning task, with in-teractive environments it is how the user or learner will un-dertake the task with the tools and functionality built into the software that is more important for creating motivation and engagement. Consideration of the role of the learner as an actor in the interaction can be a useful organizing framework for designing "encounters."
