Conceptual Design and Validation of Meta-Model for Active e-Learning

Lilia Cheniti Belcadhi and Sonia Ayachi Ghannouchi

Abstract—Active Learning improves student attitudes and develops thinking and writing skills. It is increasingly recommended as a teaching method to improve learning. In this paper we are interested in the transformation of a face to face active course into a web-based active course. First we propose a mapping between concepts related to active instructional methods and corresponding online concepts. Further to this mapping exercise, a meta-model, including pedagogical and technical concepts, is designed. In order to evaluate and validate the proposed mapping and meta-model a case study is carried out. It concerns the transformation of an entrepreneurship active course into an online version and its deployment in the context of a training of trainers.

Index Terms—Active learning, active e-learning, meta-model, mapping, instructional design.
