Juan Eusebio Silva Quiroz

Abstract


The goal of studying interactions in online environments is to know the kind of interactions which take place in discussion forums. This article contains the results of an exploratory, descriptive research that analyzes, with both quantitative as well as qualitative approaches, a virtual learning environment for comprehensive teacher training in their whole: the course, the platform, the tutor’s role, the exchanges between the tutor and the participating teachers in the discussion forum, analyzing those exchanges, to whom they are addressed and their collaborative or personal natures. Regarding this experience, the results show a positive evaluation for the course, the tutor’s role and the platform; as to the interventions which arise between the tutor and the participants in an interactive context, at the beginning, the participants’ interactions are personal, though, little by little, they become more collaborative.
