The practices of "communautique" in the online learning core

Several sociological, educative and economics approaches are questioned by this deployment of new collective practices and virtual communities in advanced modernity spaces. The concepts of groupware and collective intelligence are the proof of existence of a new determining social movement. However, it is important to ask ourselves what actual part is given to groupware practices by the learners in their learning approach and more specifically in e-learning. Based on a 2009 research lead with adults following either remote trainings or e-training, we describe here the groupware practices and we expose the methods and the active skills used to structure theses digital practices of interaction and pedagogical cooperation. We try to describe these practices and to understand what would promote the development of these skills specific to collectives' practices.
