The educational environment and related trends have been rapidly changing upon the onset of the 4th industrial revolution. Online learning has been utilized to provide learners with efficient learning opportunities. However, online learning has a problem with the low participation of learners. In order to solve this problem, research on interactive learning tools is being conducted. This study investigates a learning model based on participatory interaction by analyzing the status of advanced cases which utilize interactive learning tools and representative examples. This study provides suggestions for the establishment of a learning model based on participatory interaction. The research results will aid in constructing an online learning environment which could provide highly realistic customized learning, and it has been judged that it will be utilized as basic material in developing LMS for learners’ effective e-learning and in designing a learning model in the future (based on this study).
