A dynamic environment for distance learning is a 2010 conference paper written in English by Chatzisawa S., Tsoulouhas G., Georgiadou A., Karakos A. and published in CSEDU 2010 - 2nd International Conference on Computer Supported Education, Proceedings.

[edit] Abstract

Research was conducted concerning Learning Management Systems (LMS) resulting in 'Moodle' being an efficient tool in dynamic distance learning environment. The fact that Moodle is an open source program allows the programmer to modify and extend it thus provide the possibility to develop a chat module that allows online communication in real time. Chat is in 'question - answer' form. The characteristic of this module is a virtual user. This user will be used in future development, in relation with data mining technology, in order to answer to students' questions. In addition, wikis was embedded into the system due to their wide range of implementations in education. Both types of wikis, closed and open, were included into the system. 'MediaWiki' was used in order to create the open wiki. Additional tools involved in the environment enable users to upload files, create quizzes, forums, calendar, questionnaires and more, aiming to the creation of a dynamic environment of distance learning. Regarding the dynamic environment developed, the program was tested in a high school as a tool, in terms of asynchronous learning environment, in order to ensure that is functional and easy to use.
