Abstract

Many classroom activities are sequential and structured and teachers are used to this kind of learning design. However, online learning environments are often disorderly and uncontrolled, and offered to students as a free smorgasbord. The paper describes a bridge between the two learning environments through the use of a web-based learning activity management system (LAMS). In the two cases described in the paper structured, flexible web-based tasks are provided which can be used both for online self-study and in a classroom setting. The study has found preliminary evidence of success in gaining the acceptance of students and teachers for the ideas of adding control to online learning activities while adding flexibility to classroom teaching. Obstacles and challenges have been recorded in the two cases and are converted into practical ideas for improvement.
