TORRES, Patrícia Lupion. Online learning laboratory: a collaborative learning experiment with the use of the Eurek@Kids virtual learning environment. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.73, pp. 335-352. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622007000300006.
This paper presents the virtual learning environment known as Eurek@Kids, which allows children and adolescents in hospital to continue their studies. The Eurek@Kids virtual learning environment is the result of research by teachers and students at the Postgraduate Education Program at PUCPR. This project, which was financially supported by CNPq, received approval to be started in June 2005, with its first phase expected to be finished in 2007. The initiative has been built upon experience gained with the development and use of the PUCPR Eureka virtual learning environment, which allows collaborative learning approaches to be developed. This paper also describes a collaborative learning approach known as On-line Learning Laboratory.
