    Abstract

    Starting from some central issues of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in learning and of collaborative learning, this paper postulates a composite framework for evaluating learning environments. Using the framework, one scenario is described and analysed. The framework identifies where ICT in learning (e-learning) may be enhanced and where ICT may be difficult for students. Some conclusions are made relevant to the design of ICT learning environments. Areas for future research are suggested.
