Ellis, 2003: 183) Laurillard et al. (2000) applied the notion of affordance to research on computer-mediated learning by studying students’ relation to a CDROM. Their study shows how, instead of discussing the content of the CD-ROM (that is, the input), the students’ interaction was limited to talk about how to find their way round the software. The designers had transferred the activities from the face-to-face classroom to the electronic setting without taking into account the affordances of the media, which included navigational aspects, poorly understood by the learners because unsupported through the CD-ROM’s activities.

I mean by it something that refers to both the environment and the animal in a way that no existing term does. It implies the complementarity of the animal and the environment.

Cook, 2003: np) While recent technologies increasingly incorporate sound, most virtual environments are indeed disembodied environments, unable to replicate modes such as gestures or touch. Humans are accustomed to using body language to accompany the mode of spoken language and make meaning in face-to-face interaction. Superficially, therefore, the new media might seem to offer nothing more than ‘reduced acts’ (Cook, 2003). However, we argue that neither view is helpful. Both approach online communication on the basis of face-to-face interaction rather than trying to understand what the new media can offer in their own right.
