Abstract [en]

Companies need of qualified and educated staff has stressed the importance of life long learning. Distance education can be one method to meet these demands. Distance education offers flexibility for students to choose time and place for their studies and the possibility to combine work and family life with university studies. The purpose of this study is to investigate a learning environment represented by a Learning Centre and a Learning Management System (LMS). The need of communication and social interaction in four different distance courses offered by Mälardalen University are explored. Both students and tutors appreciated an introduction meeting face-to-face and the students felt that support and feedback from the tutors were important. The four courses used different LMS:s and students as well as tutors were satisfied with the functionalities regardless of what kind of LMS they used. The Learning Centre was appreciated and utilized by half of the student group. Some of the workgroups felt it was easier to meet face-to-face than to use the LMS for interaction. The conclusion is that social interaction between students as well as students and tutors is important for the students´ learning processes. A LMS, while appreciating the importance of social interaction, can fulfil the demands of communication, collaboration, support and feedback from both students and tutors. Therefore a LMS can be seen as a learning environment on its own and a Learning Centre as a complementary part of the learning environment for students who appreciate face-to-face meetings.
