Etudes expérimentales sur l'enseignement à distance

Abstract : Studies on distance learning and communication are mostly based on the program rather than on theories or experiments. Researchers are more interested in designing new products than in evaluating on a theoretical and/or experimental basis their efficiency. First, we analyze the way the theories on learning, teaching, instructional design and communication are handled in the field of distance learning. Then, we describe about fifteen experimental studies in the field of CMC, CSCW, CHI and distance learning. Their goal is to measure the comparative effects of various factors. They are grouped together according to the subjects' tasks : communicating with other people, designing a procedure or a document, following a course. The major result of these studies is that using new medias does not have a significant effect on communication or learning.
