The process:

When designing a distance-learning course, the main competences desired to be archived by students are defined.

These characteristics must be assessed during or after an established time, using some pre-defined criteria.  Courses that are conducted by a e-tutor (also called as proactive-tutoring courses) are provided with an environment that offers the possibility for students retrieving documents and that provide a tool used to exchange asynchronous messages.

The study intends to define a way to measure the Impact of the Information exchanged in forums during the courses, making easier the assessment of achievement of the competences aimed.
