Abstract or Summary

Increasingly the perceived benefits of using networked technologies in learning activities are being exploited within all curricula areas. As online software applications and services such as digital-document storage, search engines, communication tools, social-media and multi-media data-bases mature, so does educator’s use of this medium for teaching and learning. In practice e-Learning typically involves interactivity, such as student engagement with digital content, online interaction between learners and their instructors and online interaction between learners and their peers. It is facilitated by the use of computers (stand-alone and networked), digital communication tools (such as chat, e-mail, forums, messenger, VoIP, social media) digital content creation tools (such as Wikis, Blogs and Web-folios) and digital content (such as web- pages, e-books, CD-Roms and DVDs) A key question to be addressed is what are the educational impacts of this increased use of online applications and services on the educational experiences of learners? The purpose of this paper is to report on the findings from the deployment of a learning environment instrument designed to investigate the online learning experiences of learners.
