Integrated Pedagogigal Profile and the Design of Web-Based Learning Environments.
Hautakangas, Sami; Ranta, Pekka
This paper presents the characteristic features of a method for description and evaluation of learning environments which aims at the improvement of the traditional questionnaire-based methods and the integration of the varying points of view of design, support for learning, and evaluation. This method, called Integrated Pedagogical Profile (IPP) can be seen as an advancement of the profile of pedagogical dimensions presented by Thomas Reeves, but with some significant reconstructions. The solution presented in this paper is based on the reconstruction of the dimensions and the creation of a fuzzy picture that can give an overall insight into the many aspects of the learning environment, yet without giving a false impression of preciseness. This dynamic picture, which integrates the above mentioned points of view in interdisciplinary fashion, is achieved by gathering the individual results and representing them by circles, the opacity of which is related to the size of the sample, this forming a general picture of the essential features.
