Abstract

This paper explores the possibilities of on-line meetings in the context of a formal learning initiative, and how replays of these meetings have been used as Learning Objects to improve the professional learning experience. We report on a study of preparation meetings in professional learning in a formal context (pre-Doctoral Summer School), exploring how a formal learning group has used the video conferencingsystem FlashMeeting™ and more specifically the Learning Objects generated by this tool. We investigate the results from a quantitative analysis of server logs and user feedback. We aim to provide insights into improving the use of Technology-Enhanced Learning in different environments, not only inventing new ways to learn but also enhancing traditional ones.
