title THE IMPACT OF THE INTERNET AND THE WORLD WIDE WEB (WWW) ON DISTANCE AND COLLABORATIVE LEARNING
summary Due to the opportunities provided by the Internet, more and more people are taking advantage of distance learning courses and during the last few years enormous research efforts have been dedicated to the development of distance learning systems. Educational institutions make wide use of technologies to support the collaboration between students and between students and teachers, adopting in most cases tools that are developed specifically for teaching and learning purposes (Web-based e-learning platforms). Such tools can be seen as the result of the last functional changes in the way in which the World Wide Web (WWW) is perceived and used. From a simple repository of documents, the Web mutated first into a provider of interactive services, and finally, into a collaborative instrument. This paper takes a look at how web-based technologies allow people who are located in different places to interact with each other in synchronous and asynchronous ways, and therefore constitute a good support for collaborative learning activities.
