Abstract

This article aims to confront how e-learning models have evolved over time from the characteristics of the web 1.0 to those of 2.0 looking briefly at the CMS, LMS, LCMS and PLE platforms and how it is essential to carefully first consider the constructivist pedagogical theories so as to comprehend the present situation, as well as that of the forthcoming future.

Notes

  1. 1.

    Eletti V. (a cura di), Che cos’è l’e-learning, Carocci, 2002: “E-learning is a method of teaching and learning that involves both the product and the training process. Product training is any type of material or content made available in digital format through media or network. Training process is meant instead to manage the entire learning process that involves the aspects of supply, use, interaction, assessment. In this dimension, the real added value of e-learning emerges in support services and tutoring, in both synchronous and asynchronous modes of interaction, sharing and collaboration at the level of the community. Peculiarities of e-learning is the high flexibility afforded to the learner by the availability of anytime, anywhere learning content, which enables the self-management and self-determination of their own learning; remains of paramount importance scanning of the training process, according to an agenda that empowers forming and trainer in order to achieve the educational objectives set.”
