In this work, we try to demonstrate that the use of the science of information and communication allows the implementation of new tools for online training. In a first reflection we will consider the work on constructivism and socio-constructivism with a look at the work of Hayek and Boudon, to explain the non-normative behavior of learners. This idea will be completed by using the work of Piaget and Vygotsky and the emergence of several models from the SIC, as the linguistic approach to the analysis and the improvement of content. Our work tries to provide some answers, from the theoretical and methodological point of view.
