Tout enseignement est à distance. De nouveaux environnements informatisés peuvent évaluer automatiquement diverses productions d’apprenants et leur procurer divers renseignements sur ces dernières. En révélant d’autres distances que physiques (épistémiques et sociales), et en s’agrégeant au sein de plates-formes sociales, ces environnements offrent de nouvelles perspectives dans l’enseignement à distance et en présence. Cet article présente trois widgets évaluant des aspects divers des processus d’apprentissage et délivrant leurs évaluations sous la forme de distances (distance sémantique, cognitive individuelle ou sociale). Ces trois widgets peuvent s’interconnecter pour former un environnement personnel d’apprentissage, environnement qui a fait l’objet d’une première étude exploratoire d’usage, avec des étudiants d’informatique. English abstract: Every teaching is distant. New computer environments can automatically assess various productions of learners and provide several feedback. By revealing non-physical distances (social and epistemic), and by joining in social platforms, these environments offer new opportunities in distance learning but also in face-to-face learning. This article presents three widgets evaluating various aspects of learning processes and delivering their evaluation as a form of distance (semantic distance, individual cognitive distance and social distance). All three widgets can be interconnected to build a personal learning environment, which is the subject of a first exploratory case-study with computer science students.
This paper is intended for trainers interested in the implementation of a partially automated online human support scheme as part of distance learning. It is aimed to present an instructional design method based on scenarios and illustrate it through providing support to better understand text summaries. This situation was tested in an online application before being implemented in an academic course.

Most e-learning systems engage successively students in reading, writing and assessment activities. In the third phase, the teacher gives feedback on student comprehension, which is often processed a long time after the others, letting the students alone with their difficulties. Thus, there is room to devise automated assessment systems on course comprehension, based on NLP techniques such as latent semantic analysis (LSA). The aim of this paper is to present some systems devised to complete this aim, which implement LSA to model learners' comprehension and/or to compare reading material (e.g., course text) with learners' summaries about it, select reading materials and predict student processes from their summaries.
