Abstract

Online socio-cultural learning assists the online learner to engage in active social interaction to build social relationships and to participate in online learning communities to improve knowledge development. Online technologies do not separate online learners causing them to work and learn alone. Effectively applying online socio-cultural learning concepts assists online learners in working alone while learning together by engaging in active online collaborative social interaction. The paper proposes an online socio-cultural learning construct that addresses six critical learning characteristics (meaningful activity; Learner uniqueness; process and development; relations; metacognition reflection; and cultural tools) to support effective online learning.
