Abstract

This paper highlights the need for bringing together features and functionalities from both Argumentation Support Tools and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) in order to support the trainers in the construction and implementation of argumentation learning designs. In this context, it is also proposed that sharing learning designs across argumentation and critical thinking is one way to introduce different teaching and learning approaches that address this issue. The development and implementation of an Argumentation Learning Activity Tool (or the exploitation of an existing one) within an LMS will help to effectively address the problem of teaching argumentation skills.
