  1. 1. A MIGRATION FROM A CONVENTIONAL LMS TO A CLOUD-BASED LEARNING PLATFORM EMA KUŠEN DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATICS, UNIVERSITY OF RIJEKA, CROATIA
  2. 2. A PRESENTATION OUTLINE 1. Overview of the new technologies for teaching/learning 2. A migration to a cloud-based learning system 3. Students’ attitudes and experience Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  3. 3. DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY  PLE & Web 2.0 tools  Mobile learning  Cloud computing Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  4. 4. DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013 • rapid development of technology in many sectors
  5. 5. Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013 DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION • traditional e-learning -> LMS • content-centric • unadaptable to specific user’s needs • need for a new approach to using technologies for learning Web 2.0 Mobile learning Cloud computing
  6. 6. PLE & WEB 2.0 TOOLS • PLE – a Personal Learning Environment • A system that helps learners take control of and manage their own learning • Supports learners: • set their own learning goals • manage their learning • communicate with others Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013

  8. 8. MOBILE LEARNING • mobile devices • Apps -> daily life • use in education • low cost/free alternatives to commercial software Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  9. 9. CLOUD COMPUTING “computation paradigm in which the resources of an IT system are offered as services in a flexible way over the Internet” (Fernandez et. al, 2012) • “pay-as-you-go” model • from a low financial situation to enough computing power for researching SaaS PaaS IaaS  infrastructure as a service servers, storage, operating systems and virtualization of hardware resources offered through the Internet  platform as a service  software as a service education software and consumer software Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  10. 10. CLOUD COMPUTING • cloud-based system should support: • different teaching methods • different learning styles • various kinds of content presentation (video, graphics, and animations) • different types of educational activities (textual assignments, multimedia quizzes, reading course materials, etc.) • interactivity • avoidance of distractions that interrupt the learning stream Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  11. 11. MUDRI • Administration? • Threat of a server crash? • Inclusion of Web 2.0 tools? Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013

  13. 13. INSTRUCTURE CANVAS • Operations Research • target group: students of the 1st year of graduate studies of Informatics, experienced in a blended-learning model Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  14. 14. THE MIGRATION PROCESS Criterion- based selection process Course import and adjustment Student registration Course progress Course evaluation Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  15. 15. THE MIGRATION PROCESS PHASE 1: A CRITERION-BASED SELECTION PROCESS CATEGORIES SATISFACTION OF CRITERIA High level of importance supports designed learning activities supports the following roles – professor, TA and student organization of course topics into blocks a quiz with various question types which is password restricted math equations and formulas hand in a homework assignment, restrict the upload after the deadline clear and easy to use gradebook cost free online help a teacher can embed additional tools into the course + + + + + + + + + + Medium level of importance import a zipped course from MudRi + Low level of importance in the native language local support adjustment to students with special needs - - - • 7 categories of criteria for evaluation of LMSs  system requirements and tools,  flexibility, interoperability and support,  administrative settings and technical characteristics,  integration of Web 2.0 tools,  tools for content distribution,  tools for communication. Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  16. 16. THE MIGRATION PROCESS PHASE 1: CRITERION-BASED SELECTION PROCESS • standard LMS features • mobile apps, adaptable for accessing from mobile devices with minimal hardware requirements • possibility to include external tools and widgets -> PLE • the tools needed for the course were either embedded or linked to the learning platform -> students could learn and solve tasks anywhere, provided that the Internet connection was available. Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
  17. 17. THE MIGRATION PROCESS PHASE 2: COURSE IMPORT AND ADJUSTMENT • the zipped file of the course was successfully imported from MudRi PHASE 3: STUDENT REGISTRATION • a list of the email addresses of all students enrolled in the course • deadline: seven days to complete the registration process • email remainder Kušen, A migration from a conventional LMS to a cloud-based learning platform, PSST 2013
