Evaluation of online learning

  1. 1. Evolution of students Participation in discussions forum in programming course In Programming course, seven discussion topics were suggested by the students. Results from Programming course records showed that students responded to the discussion boards while studying with Programming course by sending a total number of 115 messages. Assuming that every student in Programming course (26 students) should participate by sending at least one message to each discussion board, this number (115) represents only 58.2% of the predicted total number of messages (182) that should be sent to the discussion boards. In other words, the average number of messages sent by each student throughout Programming course was 4.42, compared with the ideal total of 7. The total number of messages posted to the discussion boards Number of Total number of messages Actual total number of Percent students assumed to be sent messages sent by students 26 182 115 58.2% Some students ignore participation in discussions and some of them have positive attitude toward discussion. The minimum number of messages per student sent to the discussion boards was zero. However, three students posted between seven and nine messages during studying in Programming course.

  2. 2. Patterns and examples of students’ interactive responses Patterns Percent Examples of responses Self-introduction 45.65% ‘I think […]’. ‘My Point is […]’ ‘My view is this equation […]’. Statements that 16.87% 'I think Issa has the correct answer […]'. comment on 'Of course Hamed, for example […]'. another message 'I Agree with Ali, for example […]'. ‘I found the same results as Mohamed […]’. Responding to the 12.32% ‘Hello Mr […], I'll do that at home because there is no time tutor’s views or today’. advice ‘Thank Mr[…], I'll do that work later’ Responding to 5.62% 'I think Ali's found the correct answer. My answer is accept or reject approximately the same as his'. others’ views and opinions without explanation Responding to 39.43% 'Yes this is correct. A method is a Procedure, it does some accept or reject work. If the procedure runs when an event occurs, like others’ views and clicking a button, then it is called event handler'. opinions with more explanation Patterns and examples of students’ cognitive and content-related responses Patterns Percent Examples of responses Solution without 78.43% ‘.Net framework consists of class libraries and common explanation language runtime which are file systems and small supportive programs that help to run all languages (C++, visual basic, C, ………. ext) in the computer. ’. Solution 12.96% ‘The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software accompanied technology that is available with several Microsoft with explanation Windows operating systems. It includes a large library of pre-coded solutions to common programming problems and a virtual machine that manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework.’. Alternative 1% ‘The utilities are applications used mainly by the solution computer it self to serve the computer i.e. these application doesn't benefit the user immediately but it protect his work, maintain his computer ..etc’.
  3. 3. Patterns Percent Examples of responses Question directly 0% - No response related to the discussion topic Question for 0% - No response more clarification Repeating 6% ‘Net framework consists of class libraries and common information language runtime…’ contained in the course materials Repeating 3% ‘Microsoft .NET is much more than XML Web services’. information contained in the discussion topic (Cnt_repd) Conclusion 0% - No response (Cnt_conc)
