Abstract

Too often e-learning is considered in a narrow context of delivery of “content”, which might be text, or multimedia, or is expressed in terms of “learning management”, or “assessment” by drill and practice style tests. Such views of e-learning overcome some practical problems, such as allowing students to learn at a distance, or to learn in their own time, but they do little to encourage innovative thinking and interaction, which may be more appropriate skills in a modern society. This paper considers modes of communication,, and tools which can be used to enhance interaction and learning, including recently promoted tools such as weblogs and wikis, and = issues relating to each.
