Abstract: The different papers in this special issue all addressed learning with complex tasks. All of these papers reached only partially the expected results. This discussion on possible factors that may explain these unexpected results. A first issue that is questioned is the functionality of the tools in the studies. Secondly, the learners lack of compliance is addressed. It may have been that the learners did not take the opportunities offered to them. Third, the use of the support by the learners itself is questioned. Although some methodological issues can be raised, the different papers made a worthwhile attempt to grasp the complexity in a learning environment. Moreover, they highlight the importance of a consolidated framework to determine relevant factors that should be considered when dealing with complexity. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
