Abstract [en]

The study focuses on a group of distance students and their attitudes towards knowledge construction in distance education. Their usage of a web based Learning Management System (LMS) is studied and the relation between the students’ activity on a discussion forum and their learning outcomes is described and discussed. The study was carried out by interviewing a group of distance students and their teachers and also by studying the students’ behaviour on a LMS. The students’ attitudes towards their own learning process showed lack of confidence in their capability of contributing to knowledge construction in a student group. The concluding part of this paper indicates that the students’ attitudes towards knowledge construction and learning processes affected the way they behaved on the discussion forum. The study also shows that the students’ activity on a discussion forum is related to their learning outcome.
