A Mix Beyond Time: E-Learning And Socrate’S Maieutics





The transition from direct learning to distance education modifies the roles of all actors involved in this process. Moreover, new characters appear on stage, among which one should count the tutor or the trainer at distance, the manager and the responsible person for the platform of the distance learning program. This article aims at developing a parallel between the mission of the teacher from the traditional education and that of the tutor working in distance training, emphasizing the return to one of the oldest methodological techniques, namely Socrate’s maieutics.
