ALVAREZ, Guadalupe. Multimedia, hypertextual and discursive strategies aimed to develop online learning spaces. Estud. pedagóg. [online]. 2012, vol.38, n.1, pp.89-103. ISSN 0718-0705. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07052012000100005.
With the Information and Communication Technology, and the continuous development of interactive multimedia dynamics in web sites and e-learning platforms, the relationship between learning and discourse has come into a new place. This paper aims to analyze this relationship in online contexts considering Marton et al. (2004) learning concept, and the basic guidelines of multimodal social semiotic. From this perspective, multimedia, hypertextual and discursive strategies aimed to develop online learning spaces are analyzed in the different subjects of an Interuniversity's Master of quality faculty formation. The analysis shows that hypertextual and multimedia strategies are infrequent, and only used by tutors. Furthermore, both tutors and students strategies are directed to a "limited learning" development.
