Abstract

Chat has been used for support to development of environmental courses in a network of universities (ELAC) in Latin America and EU. 12 thematic chats were held on various common learning subjects as themes and 11 course chats focussed specifically on the design of 5 courses. 36 participants participated in different numbers of the chats and the chats had an average of 8 (thematic chats) and 5 (course chats) participants with a maximum of 14. The chats lasted on an average 51 minutes. Chat was found to be quite efficient communication tool with an average of more than 3 peoples’ utterances per minute. The chats have contributed to the course design and used in combination with discussion forums it is very useful for communication over large distances. The chats have contributed to capacity building among the teachers in use of online tools for course design and probably to starting a community of practice among the teachers.
