Abstract

The Online Learning Laboratory, LOLA, is a collaborative learning methodology for classroom-based and distance learning that was defended in a PhD thesis and used in several subsequent research studies. In this chapter the author describes the first results of a case study undertaken with students on a postgraduate course in education. A further activity (the construction of a concept map) was added to the six activities in LOLA, and its inclusion was the object of this study. The methodological approach used in this research was a case study with an exploratory objective. To answer the questions raised in the study, a new review of the literature related to the following subjects was carried out: restructuring, implementing and following up the online learning laboratory methodology using concept maps; drawing up and applying a questionnaire; and analysis and discussion of the data obtained. A nonprobabilistic convenience sample was used. Their analysis and preliminary considerations focus on the data gathered from the students.
