Abstract

Although art appreciation / exploration is essentially a private experience, it cannot exist outside of a social context. Digital environments offer great potential for the enhancement of collaborative aspects of both art creation and art exploration. However, the current notion of a digital environment is vague and most often associated with the traditional concepts of computer use. Thus, the goal of this paper is twofold: a) to present an analysis of the characteristics of digital environments, and b) to suggest their potential uses in the building of collaborative pedagogical procedures for the digital medium.
