This paper promotes the distributed cognition theory as a tool for the analysis of e-learning environments and presents the results of a pilot study aimed at identifying errors in e-learning strategies in a design postgraduate course. Interactions between students, between students and tools, students and formal organization, and students with the environment are analyzed within the framework of Distributed Cognition. An appraisal on the appropriateness of the distributed cognition theory in the analysis of this kind of environment is presented. The results of this research may be useful for those individuals involved in the e-learning system management as well as for those who want to implement e-learning programs to distribute design education.
