Multichannel Self-organized Learning and Research in Web 2.0 Environments


This paper explores the functionalities of the start pages and considers their usefulness for deployment as learning and research environments for self-organized learners. The start pages’ comparative analysis is done according to created criteria, focused on availability of the authoring, syndicated information, communication, collaboration and networking, research, and evaluation tools. The purpose of this evaluation is to propose a solution of a multichannel environment that can support self-organized learners in their learning process and knowledge construction. The importance of the environments for performing a broad set of activities and for producing rich learning experiences is examined from the point of view of learning design. The prototype of a learning and research multichannel environment is provided in Netvibes and Pageflakes.
