Contribution théorique et méthodologique visant à appréhender l'activité significative des utilisateurs d'un système multimédia

Abstract : In a situated-cognition framework, this communication presents an ergonomic approach to describing and interpreting a user's activity on a computer-assisted interactive learning environment. It proposes a theoretical and methodological framework in reference to course-of-action theory. By focusing on the dynamics of the user-computer interaction, this approach allows to access the meaning that the user grants to its action and to the organization of this action. Observation data for a user was collected on-line and supplemented a posteriori by self-appraisal verbalization data. The three stages of data processing are presented by giving examples. The results present a description and an explanation of the local and global organization of the user's course of action. They demonstrate the complexity of his exploration and learning activity, how he activates and constructs knowledge during action, and his emotional states that alternate between feelings of apprehension, enjoyment, and effort. The implications of these results for the design of computer-assisted learning environments are discussed.
