    Which are the scientific areas with the highest utilization rates;
    The gender and age with the highest utilizations rates;
    How a LMS is being used;

  • 24. Spreading the survey
    ROB / ALA

  • 30. Others referred LMS:
    METU Online, High Learn, Formare, Learning Space, First Class, Dokeos, Class Fronter, KEWL.
    Some respondents use custom made LMS (Burlea & Burdescu, 2009).
