Interaction online: Above and beyond requirements of assessment
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology Volume 18, Number 1, ISSN 0814-673X Publisher: Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education
Today's literature is filled with new paradigms for learning, specifically in relation to the increasing adoption of computer mediated techniques for interactive learning. In many cases, learning may now be enhanced through the experience of a shared online environment for critical discussion, knowledge building and the establishment of supportive social communities. Research data obtained from social science students at Southern Cross University over two semesters reveals students' perceptions of the importance of online discussion whether these are assessable or not. This paper presents some findings and explores the impact of the emergence of a student-centred social learning environment.
