Time and digital mediations of learning

Marc Clarà


The transformation of the temporal dimension of learning deeply transforms the learning process itself, as temporality is a crucial aspect of learning phenomena. However, research has not focused very much on the temporal dimension of e-learning, on how different kinds of digital mediation transform learning time, and how these time transformations influence the learning process. In this respect, the eLearn Center has been conducting a large research program aimed at achieving a better understanding of the time dimensions in differently digitally mediated learning processes. In the present volume of the eLearn Center Research Paper Series, which is the second volume of the journal exclusively devoted to PhD students’ research, we present four studies which focus on this issue by paying special attention to the role of time in different kinds of digital mediation of learning.
