Abstract

This paper deals with the challenge of designing online learning architectures for master students. From different theoretical concepts and with a netnographic methodological research approach, the paper discusses theoretical concepts, challenges and mechanisms significant to designing and structuring the “walls” of a digital learning architecture conducive to the establishment of a social, inclusive, empowering and interactive learning climate online. It makes a plea for using an approach of dialogic design with meta-structures in the communicative fora in order to promote inclusiveness, reflection, empowerment and ownership amongst learners.
