Abstract

E-learning environments are mostly associated with systems for tutor-assisted learning, blended learning, or collaborative learning. Static roles and functional structures are the rule. Thereby, the learning environment takes centre stage and users must adapt to the specific characteristics of this learning environment. In contrast to this, we present the concepts of a learning environment that, in its structures, largely adapts to the real world: We assume that all users initially act on an equal basis in the environment. Only when a specific task in a shared workspace of the e-learning environment is to be approached do differences, and thus roles and rights, become relevant.
