Abstract

Constructivist theories and modern pedagogical concepts emphasize that an activation of students is one of the most influential factors for learning effectiveness. The implementation of those educational concepts in e-learning, especially in distance learning contexts, is a rather difficult challenge. Systems that assist lectures in this intention are required. In this study, a student’s reaction towards e-learning is observed. The focus is on student’s demographics in order to analyze their reaction towards e-learning. Solving tasks and observing and critiquing this solution process, instead of merely assessing the end product of e-learning processes. A sample of 105 students from the University was drawn and the findings suggest that e-learning investment can help address a need for this type of support.
