Asynchrony, textuality and cooperation in virtual training

Cristóbal Suárez Guerrero


This work studies in depth three training constants analyzed in the context of the virtual world: time, interaction, and communication. To do so, it makes a qualitative study of virtual training at the university level with the aim of understanding the dynamic of interaction in discontinuous segments of time, within a protocol of textual communication and incorporating a cooperative manner of learning. With this we aspire to contribute to the construction of a pedagogical dimension of virtuality that recognizes that time, interaction, and communication mediated technologically, far from being neutrals aspects of the process, create a particular educational environment that reconfigures the modes of learning and teaching.
