The contexts and factors which must be negotited in online communications within learning contexts are quite complex. Educators may need to provide prarameters and protocols to ensure appropriate languages, genres and utterances are utlised. This paper explores some of the types of languages, genres and utteracces that emerged from a co-curricula drama project and issues that arose with reference to frameworks drawn from O'Toole as well as Wertsch, Bakhtin and Vygotsky. This paper is of relevance to those whose research strategies may involve the use of computer-mediated communications as well as those utilising cyberspaces in educational contexts.
