  • The extent of the economy over traditional "talk-and-chalk" teaching is not yet clear, but using a VLE almost certainly absorbs less instructor time (and requires less expertise, while producing a more professional result) than creating a home-grown website for a course.
  • A Comparison of Satisfaction with Online Teaching and Learning Tools, study conducted at Humboldt State University by Bert Bos, Kathy D. Munoz, Professor, Humboldt State University, and Joan Van Duzer, Instructional Technologist, Humboldt State University; 15 February 2005; HSU is the northernmost campus of the California State University system.
  • Tracking Faculty Uses of Online Learning Tools: A Statewide PerspectiveAs part of the GeorgiaVIEW (Vista Implementation Enterprise Wide) project, a study of current faculty uses, experiences, and expectations regarding course management systems (CMS) was conducted.By H. Hilliard Gastfriend and Catherine Finnegan, both Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.

  • This is a course management system that I installed and developed. I started using this in my graduate course in Management 286: Management of Information Systems and Technologies. Moodle was an exact fit for my course as it is in itself an example of Information System in action. However, I saw advantages and benefits in its use in other courses as well.

  • The future of pedagogy?
  • A virtual learning environment (VLE) is a software system designed to help teachers by facilitating the management of educational courses for their students, especially by helping teachers and learners with course administration. Some examples:
  •     usually run on servers, to serve the course to students via multimedia and/or web pages usually include templates for content pages, discussion forums, chat, quizzes and exercises such as multiple-choice, true/false and one-word-answer sometimes also called Learning Management System (LMS), Course Management System (CMS), Learning Content Management System (LCMS), Managed Learning Environment (MLE), Learning Support System (LSS) or Learning Platform (LP) is a computer program that facilitates computerized learning or e-learning.
  •      syllabus for the course details of pre-requisites and co-requisites, credit information, and how to get help notice board for up-todate course information student registration and tracking facilities basic teaching materials, may be the complete content of the course    additional resources, including reading materials, and links to outside resources in libraries and on the Internet self-assessment quizzes which can be scored automatically automatic grading procedures
  •    communication support including e-mail, threaded discussions and a chat room differential access rights for instructors and students documentation and statistics on the course for institutional administration and quality control    facilities are capable of being hyperlinked together easy authoring tools for creating documents including the insertion of hyperlinks support for numerous courses, so students and instructors experience a consistent interface when moving from one course to another
  •   economize on the time of teachers, especially when they are also involved in research, extension and administration provide a service for students who increasingly look to the internet as the natural medium for finding information and resources   ensure that quality control requirements are met by providing a standard vehicle for collecting the required information facilitate the integration of distance and campusbased learning or of learning on different campuses
  • The following are some of the major VLEs today:  Dokeos  Moodle  Sakai  ATutor  Blackboard  Claroline  WebCT For those wishing to deliver e-learning there are many free open source and proprietary VLEs available for use. Most VLEs are placed on a web server, meaning they can be accessed by a web browser with Internet connection.
  •      Learning Management System (LMS) software partially owned by Microsoft Popular software used around the world Licensed annually (HSU pays approx. $8,600 each year) Used at HSU since 2001 Over $1 million spent each year in the CSU on Blackboard licenses     “Open source” (free!) Learning Management System (LMS) software Customizable by programming staff Flexible for the instructor and developer Supported by programmers world-wide Question: Can free software satisfactorily meet the needs of students, faculty, and instructional technologists for online teaching and learning?
  •       Facilitator's Feedback Did Blackboard/Moodle enhance instruction? Received adequate technical assistance? Technology-based activities developed problem-solving skills? Well organized instructional materials? Communication tools: Interaction with classmates?       Communication tools: Interaction with instructor? Web-based resources were effective learning tools? Discussion Boards were easy to use? Student Comments Would like another (Blackboard/Moodle) course? Which do you prefer, Moodle or Blackboard?
  • PURPOSE OF THE STUDY    To collect and analyze preimplementation data on course management system use among University System faculty. To use this data to inform development of support, services, and training for faculty to use WebCT Vista. To use this data to inform strategies for encouraging faculty not currently using CMS to try it. KEY STUDY QUESTIONS       What is the extent of the faculty use of CMS on each campus and system wide? What factors encourage faculty to start using a CMS? What factors determine whether faculty increase or decrease their use? For what purposes are CMS used? What are the pedagogical advantages of using a CMS? What barriers prevent faculty from using a CMS?
  • SURVEY DETAILS      Survey administered online. 33 of 34 institutions participated. Between 25-80% of faculty at each institution responded. Total number of responses = 3,228 Approximately 37% of all USG faculty participated. DEMOGRAPHICS       58.0% of respondents were tenured/tenure track faculty 16.7% of respondents were non-tenure track 13.4% of respondents were part-time faculty 19.6% of respondents were in Arts/Humanities 13.1% of respondents were in Social Sciences 10.4% of respondents were in Math/Computer Science
