The use of internet in a training context modifies implicitly the trainer’s behaviour and role. In a traditional training action, one may notice that sharing of the roles between the teacher and the students has been significantly modified. Indeed, in the digital era, new technologies make new ways of working and studying together possible. For example, bot collaborative and cooperative work can be facilitated by the use of computers and telecommunications resources. These new and emerging technologies seem particularly supportive of constructivist teaching principles such as authentic instruction and situated learning as suggested by Jonassen .
