This chapter describes a learning environment that implements a learning design that promotes an adaptive approach towards e-learning. A theoretical model describes the interactive components of an e-learning environment. This model can be used as a designing tool for implementing an effective framework to support the social aspects of human-computer interaction. It discusses the institutional and national context of the e-learning programme offered by a school in Fiji that is accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organization. A zoom-lens approach is taken by the year-5 classroom teacher to encourage her students’ experiential learning. However, alternative instructional strategies are required when the Internet becomes unstable. This means extra activities are required that do not involve computers. Some of these tasks are self-reflection diary entries that produce added interest for the students as they prepare for their presentations at the school assemblies.
