  14. 14. Methodology At the beginning a very closely planned schedule But then.... - a constant presence within the forums - a irregular presence by chat : - on demand (from student) - planned via Announces - when working on the course

  19. 19. But... The course on the LMS required a great involvement from the teacher. Need a great motivation from his side too (as well as for the student one) Much more time granted to the “extra educational” resources research and accompaniment of the students than on a “normal” course Not only a teacher but also : - a social regulator (reassuring or motivation students) - an educational moderator - a guide toward new educational products
  20. 20. Conclusion Great enrichment via LMS Tools Different tools for different typology of courses Pro-active learning for students Great group cohesion Much more better acquisition of educational notions and « deep learning » Learning become much more incentive But Requires much time from teacher Requires teacher to listen to students needs Requires a great personal organization from the teacher
