Abstract

Educational uses of networks are rapidly expanding as the problems of "ease-of-use" and "access" are gradually being solved. However, even as these problems are being solved, the solutions create second-order problems, such as students and teachers becoming overwhelmed with massive amounts of network generated information. In this paper we present conceptual frameworks that characterize some of the unique properties of network learning environments which then can be used to provide systematic guidance to the design of network learning activities and software tools. We illustrate these frameworks by showing how they have helped us design two different tools for educational uses of networks: The Message Assistant and the Learning Resource Server. The utilization of these frameworks to address general issues related to network learning environments is also considered.
