Sustainable E-Learning for the Teaching of Japanese

Designing for Autonomous Learning

Alessandro Mantelli    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



With the Lisbon 2000 Strategy, the focus of education systems has shifted from contents to competencies and due to the constant update of new technologies, education has to be considered as a lifelong process. In this context, online technologies play an increasingly crucial role. While research on learning software has mainly focused on the contents and digital medium in teaching, this study examines aspects of the digital artifacts that have been rarely investigated but are fundamental to increase the learner’s motivation, including system, interface, navigation, and graphics. Specifically, this work develops a new framework to analyse user experience and sustainability strategies that have been implemented in the case study JaLea. The analysis of primary data, collected with surveys and interviews, allows determining whether these strategies are effective for the creation of e-learning systems that are useful for the learner’s personal study, as well as investigate possible developments for teaching environments.
