Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present two classes of distance learning experiments, with feedbacks. The experiments are based on constructivism theory.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper adopts an experimental approach. Experiments are made with students. The assessments come from an analysis of questionnaires.

Findings

The results show technical evaluations and pedagogical evaluations of the e‐learning platform.

Research limitations/implications

There are functional improvements of the developed platform.

Practical implications

There are technical improvements of the developed platform.

Originality/value

This paper presents a student centered pedagogical approach supported by distant e‐learning platform.
