Abstract

The paper characterizes the differences between physical learning community and virtual learning community and claims that virtual learning community is one of the most significant ingredients in networked learning environments. Two empirical studies, which are associated with PBL and Role Play Simulation and Game respectively, are examined against the current practice of virtual learning in respect of learning behaviors and learning performance between virtual teams and physical teams. The results of the studies reveal that physical teams outperformed virtual teams almost in all directions of constructive learning.
