In this contribution, we argue in favor of the importance of the role that interaction plays in supporting effective e-learning processes. Interaction among peers, in fact, either with real or virtual companions, is the fundamental component of the process of building and sharing new knowledge. In particular, we intend to argue in favor of a constructivist approach to e-learning. We support our view by reporting on our experience in the design of a platform for language learning through dramatization. Finally, we present the direction we intend to follow in our future research, towards the definition of an approach for enhancing effective interaction during collaborative learning and knowledge sharing in online learning environments.

Abstract

In this contribution, we argue in favor of the importance of the role that interaction plays in supporting effective e-learning processes. Interaction among peers, in fact, either with real or virtual companions, is the fundamental component of the process of building and sharing new knowledge. In particular, we intend to argue in favor of a constructivist approach to e-learning. We support our view by reporting on our experience in the design of a platform for language learning through dramatization. Finally, we present the direction we intend to follow in our future research, towards the definition of an approach for enhancing effective interaction during collaborative learning and knowledge sharing in online learning environments.
