Abstract

e-Learning represents the opportunity to design and facilitate learning process, redefining the standard learning methods by using information technologies. The aim of this paper is to give a picture of the different use scenarios of the tools used to reach our purposes in respect of the methodologies intended to adopt. In particular, we analyze : specific relationships between e-learning tools, different usage methods, interaction types and educational aims. Using the proposed model, the teachers can create teaching solutions that exploit opportunities offered by the technology and aid students to learn in more effective way.
