We present a learning model labeled "conversational learning" which roots are based on education theory fundamentals. We develop a classroom environment based on a set of profiles that facilitate the deployment of conversational learning patterns. We formalize design patterns as conversational learning guides based on standard learning design principles to facilitate a creation by reuse approach of conversational learning contents. In an attempt to support teachers in streamlining the development of conversational learning units, we suggest an integration framework to assemble learning units and orchestrate their deployment across the proposed classroom profiles. We also illustrate an actual conversion of conventional course contents into a conversational learning format and we evaluate the learning performance gain empirically using standard indicators. The results show interesting tradeoffs favoring generally the conversational learning approach over conversational learning in the envisioned future classroom environment.
