      This article reports on findings from a research program (1996-2001) that looked at the potential relationship between e-learning, social action, and mobilization in the Canadian labour movement. Our program involved the analysis of 11 on-line workshops. Over 1,100 labour activists participated. These workshops were analyzed using server log access data, participant surveys, and telephone interviews. We used a cultural historical activity theory perspective. We ask questions about the unique cultural, political, and economic interests that organized labour have in e-learning. We outline the relationship between e-learning and social change; informal and organized learning; and virtual and real-world practice. Cet article fait un rapport sur des découvertes d’un programme de recherche (1996-2001) qui a regardé le rapport potentiel entre l’apprentissage, l’action et la mobilisation sociale dans le mouvement de main-d’œuvre canadien.

      This article examines the problem of defining a broad conceptual theory for the applications of the advanced technologies in educational settings, most particularly in higher education. The article starts with discussing the multiple and confusing meanings of e-learning in the relevant literature; it proceeds to examine the problem of putting the learners in the center of the study process and exaggerating their self-directed abilities; it identifies noticeable gaps in the e-learning research; and it concludes with an analysis of some inherent challenges embedded in both conducting meaningful research on the advanced technologies in learning/teaching settings and in their actual implementation.
