Perception par le tuteur de l'activité d'un apprenant engagé dans une activité collective à dist
Cet article cherche à répondre à une des difficultés rencontrées par un tuteur en situation de suivi d'une activité collective à distance, à savoir la perception de l'activité individuelle des apprenants dans l'activité de groupe. À partir d'une étude de la littérature sur les scénarios d'activités collectives à distance et sur la dynamique de groupe, nous proposons des moyens de faciliter la perception de l'activité individuelle par le tuteur. Ces moyens s'appuient sur une perc

Personalisation Services for Self e-Learning Networks
This paper describes the personalisation services designed for self e-learning networks in the SeLeNe project. A self e-learning network consists of web-based learning objects that have been made available to the network by its users, along with metadata descriptions of these learning objects and of the network's users. The proposed personalisation facilities include: querying learning object descriptions to return results tailored towards users' individual goals and preferences; the ability to
