Support for learning processes requires ways to manage the diffusion of technology into the learning process in non-obtrusive ways. To do this the learning process must be clearly defined in terms of learning activities and the technologies needed for each activity. The paper defines the learning process as a set of activities using Nonaka’s knowledge creation process as grounded theory. It then defines the kind of support needed for the different learning activities suggesting that the support needed changes as learning proceeds and that such change should occur in a gradual manner. The paper then illustrates the approach with an example identifying ways of diffusing the technology as learning proceeds through different activities.
