Abstract

The research analyzes the structuring effect of digi- tal forums on the learning quality of hybrid devices in training engineers. It contributes to anticipate the regulation of forums by pedagogical instructions involving both the choice of the type of structuring digital forum and the aim of improving the eLear- ning quality. Depending on the structuring level, the digital forums may stimulate teacher-centered coaching for type 1 (poorly structured), or student/ learner for type 2 (fairly structured). This second case presents an important intensity of cognitive/ metacognitive messages, induced by a lear- ning dominated by more initiatives, proposals and peer reactivity. Conversely, behavior in type 1 is rather expressed in an evaluative mas- ter attitude, tending to a strong intensity of the acts of approval/disapproval of the exchanges/ communication of the peers.
