LINC: A WEB-BASED LEARNING TOOL FOR MIXED-MODE LEARNING

Tang-Ho Lê, Jean Roy

Abstract

In this paper we discuss some basic theories of learning and e-Learning. With the light of the appropriate theories, we then describe the components and particular features of our e-Learning system, the Learn IN Context System (LINC). This tool aims to be used in institution’s courses in mixed-mode learning. Finally, we report our initial experimentation with this tool and some preliminary results and evaluation.
