The aim of this paper is to present several steps of the methodology that have been defined to analyse a learning situation of tele-experimentation at ICAM (High School of Mechanical Engineering). According to the pre-defined objectives, we establish a framework based upon Activity Theory that will lead us to the definition of indicators i.e. granular key-elements and thus to the effective elaboration of questionnaires and observation grids.
