Distinguishing between different spaces and their characteristics is important for two reasons: 1) it allows teachers to check that they offer a wide and appropriate range of learning opportunities, and 2) to ensure learners are supported in benefiting from the affordances of each learning space. I created a small interactive tool available at the link above, that allows you to select parameters for eight dimensions of learning spaces (location, synchronicity, flexibility, setting, grouping, instruction, control, and formality) and that describes the resulting learning space.
