Abstract

Flexible pedagogical frameworks are needed to underpin e-learning environments in order to ensure that they address effectively the individual learning approaches of an increasingly diverse student population. A quantitative study of the flexibility of one pedagogical framework for instructional design, called I CARE, identified its limitation in supporting two types of learners: those who rely extensively on social interaction and those most in need of learning support in the novel mode of learning. To support the learning processes of such students, they should be given a choice of learning activities and tasks that support the development of different cognitive skills and promote meaningful online communication.
