Meeting Students' Expectations and Realizing Pedagogical Goals within the Development of a Virtual Learning Environment.
Frank, Christine; Kassanke, Stephan; Suhl, Leena
This paper addresses the importance of assessing and realizing students' needs and expectations while developing a virtual learning environment (VLE). The project Virtual OR/MS is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of the German Government. It involves seven German partners from six universities. The goal of the project supports the four trends as judged by Longworth to be essential in managing the challenges of the 21st century: increased use of educational tools and techniques; greater use of national and international networks; development of co-operative and two-way partnerships; and development of learning organizations and individual empowerment. The evaluation methods, their results, and the conclusions made for the development of the VLE are the focus of this paper. (Contains 16 references.) (AEF)
