Abstract [en]

Interaction lies at the heart of all education. E-learning is no different. Previous research has shown that the amount of student interaction is likely to improve the distance-learners’ educational experience, e.g. Andrusyszn et al, (1999), and Wright et al, (2000). There is a number of different interactions to consider in education from a pedagogical perspective: Since Moore (1989) defined (1) interaction with the content, (2) interaction with the instructor, and (3) interaction with the students, an additional new fourth dimension has been added by Bouhnik, Dan and Marcus, Tali (2006), named interaction with the system, the interaction with all of the new computer technologies. New and more difficult technology can be a reason for students to drop out, but it can also be a reason for them to stay. It is all a question of what technologies are used and how. As e-learning programs are constantly being developed and universities have become more financially depended upon these programs, the reduction in drop out rates has become an increasingly important issue.
