    The rapid development of new technologies and widespread of networks demand a new paradigm in education to keep up with those newly emerged environment, In this context, e-learning, distance learning and the web-based online learning community have been paid plenty of attention from both theoreticians and practitioners, The primary interest in the web based online learning community(OLC) focuses on the collaborative learning. In the OLC, learners share information and knowledge by interactions based on reasoning and information exchange. However, similar to the face- to-face interaction, emotional aspects of communication cannot beelements frequently used in online learning communities 2) to categorize the emotional elements in reasonably small number of factors so that they can be easily used by practitioners 3) to find out the frequencies of the emotional factors in accordance with the dimensions of interactive messages(Henri, 1992). Two hundred and forty elementary students and three teachers participated in this research. Participatory observation, questionaire and interviews were administered. The result of the research showed that there are six dominant factors (pleasure, concern, disappointment, anger, pride and delightfulness) of emotional expressions in OLC, And also showed that there exists significant relationships between the emotion factors and the dimensions of messages. In other words, certain emotion factors are rather frequently used by certain dimensions of messages. The importance of the integration of emotional factors in the designing of OCL was discussed and practical guidelines for the practitioners were suggested.

    Synchrozied Experimental Learning in the Context of Performing Art Practice : A Case Study of the "Y"Drama Troops

    Kim, KyungAe | Han Soonghee | 2005, 1(1) | pp.71~100 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The paper tries to figure out the nature of a collective experience’ and the process of its formation in understanding the structure of the experiential learning discourse. From our viewpoint, it is epistemologically problematic that the ‘experience’ can be portrayed under the individual-centered approach which treats it as an isolated property of some kind of ‘possession’ in each individual, As J, Dewey points out, experience is constituted by the interaction of human organism and the environment, in that each experience, although individually acquired, embodies the collective context and the ‘relationship’ as its key component. That is, in the learning process through experience, even if any learning seems to be very individualistic, it manifests itself the dependent aspect on the relationship in the web of the total organization of one’s experience. Based on the proposition, this paper spotlights on the aspect of ‘relationship’ , that is one of the important attributes of the experience. We supposed that learning in one’s experience is conducted actually in the dimension of the ‘relationship’ between the two or more experiences. Also, we can see the very meaning of learning even as individual dimension only when we magnify the scope of examination from individual to collective dimension along with focusing on the relationship of each experience being synchronized.

    Abstract PDF
    In a distance education system, a tutor plays a critical role to supporting distance learners due to its own human nature, As research reports tutor’s unique effects on student achievement, satisfaction, and persistence in learning at a distance, distance education institutions are reassessing the value of tutors while trying to build up more effective systems that can work for their students. Among others, the case of the Open University of Hong Kong(OUHK) was analyzed in this article under the themes of tutor selection, training and support, monitoring, and rewarding. For the analysis, the author drew upon two publications from OUHK: Tutor Training Course and Course Coordinator Training Manual. Some characteristics on the ways OUIIK operates her tutor system were identified in the article, as they reveal the institution’s efforts to quality distance education,

After critiquing the wide range of policy texts, this study concluded that neo-liberal, egalitarian liberal, and social democratic discourses have been continuously intertwined with each other in the EU over the last four decades which is currently being converged into under the overarching heading of Europeanisation.
