Modalité d'interaction humaine dans la formation en ligne : son influence sur l'apprentissage

Abstract : With the evolution of communication technology, human interaction becomes more and more present in e-learning environments. It is considered benefiting acquisition. But what mode of interaction is the most adequate in a given context and for a given task ? Tutoring seems to be indispensable to the learners' orientation at a distance. But, does a tutored group of peers benefit more to the learner than individual tutoring without group interaction does ? The theories of interaction that are generally evoked do not compare these two modes of tutored interaction. But this exactly is the purpose of our empirical research : it aims to find out which mode of interaction benefits more to the learner in an action-oriented language e-learning set-up. The experiment was conducted successively on two learning platforms. The results of the study show no significant difference between the acquisition of the students who worked in a tutored group and those who were tutored individually. But, groups tend to increase the quality of task accomplishment during the training period. This phenomenon occurs on both platforms. Thus, in the given context, small tutored groups help the learners to accomplish the task better, but not to learn better.
