Abstract

This paper describes and evaluates an approach to learning complex knowledge and to develop cognitive flexibility through a web platform, FleXml, based on cognitive flexibility theory. A Latin course, named Sapere Aude, was implemented to evaluate the FleXml structure and communications facilities. The course structure is described as well as the study carried out. Results point out that the course structure promoted students learning and their involvement in the forum questions. In addition, students mentioned that the structure of the platform facilitates learning.
