Learning environment’s efficiency is determined by learning methods supported. What makes the difference is not the technology itself, but rather, the learning methods enabled and supported by the technology. The main learning theories are objectivism and constructivism. Objectivism is a teacher-centered learning method whose goal is to represent and transfer objective realities from the teachers to the learners. An objectivist environment supports the passive learning methods, in which the learners are passive recipients of instruction, acquiring common understanding from teachers, rather creating their own knowledge. In contrast with objectivism, constructivism is learner centered. In a constructivist environment, learners can control their learning paces. The role of teacher is to assist the learners in constructing their own knowledge.
Web-based virtual online classroom (WVOC) is designed in two components. Instructional communicating environment (ICE) is mainly used to transfer learning materials and promote teachers and learners to interact instantly. To improve interactivity, ICE also provides some efficient tools such as chat-room, bulletin board systems etc. Collaborative learning environment (CLE) encourages learners to explore and communicate freely. This environment provides for learners some other learning tools such as lecture video, chat-room, contextual discussing forums, frequently asked questions (FAQ) etc.


The following can be deduced form the information given in the passage:

A. CLE provides a more efficient learning environment for the students than ICE does.
B. Teachers would prefer the ICE system to CLE system.
C. WVOC has a tool to transmit live feedback back and forth.
D. Students who prefer self study would not be interested in WVOC.
E. WVOC would be a successful product since it integrates both learning theories..
