In the social psychology the interaction designates the behavior of two referred one on the other or more persons with the goal of communication.

With the organization of multimedia teaching programs interactivity designates the characteristics of the software to make for the user possible various interference and control possibilities. The interactivity is to make an more individualized learning possible, because the selection and the kind of the representation of information the foreknowledge, the interests and needs of the learningare adaptable, and/or. by this to be manipulated can.

Strzebkowski divides interactivity into learning environment activities, navigation and dialogue functions, activities with the information presentation, processing functions for presented contents and processing options of the database. Strzebkowski/Kleeberg group these then for learning software only under control interactions and didactical interactions. Control interactions cover the actions,those strictly speaking the controlling of the computer and the software serve. Didactical interactions are substantially more complex against it and serve reaching training aims.

In particular in learning offers, which develop on constructionalistic learning theories, a high value is granted to the interactivity. Finally it is the goal of suchLearning offers to energize the learning to own activity and Konstruktivität.

Interactively (lat.: inter agere) meant “mutually” and “referred one on the other”.

Within the field of the social sciences one speaks of interactivity then only if two individuals with one another are in the contact and affect each other in their mutual actions mutually. Interactivitycan take place between persons directly or mediated by means of media such as telephone , E-Mail or Chat. It concerns thus the reciprocal effect from actions of different persons one on the other. In the social sciences one speaks of interactions, if it concerns mutual actions.

In contrast to it is itto speak within the range of the computer engineering quite usually also from interactivity to if humans “interact” with a computer. In this case the mutual reference is regarded. Both the person and the computer must have thereby however different options available. Exclusive making availablefrom information for example on an Internet side did not become as interactive and/or.Interaction designates.
