Shifting Pedagogical Space: Egyptian Educators Use of Moodle
Richardson, Jayson; Finholt-Daniel, Matt; Sales, Greg; Flora, Kevin
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v8 n2 p92-106 2012
This article focuses on exploring the outcomes of an e-learning initiative in Egypt. Researchers conducted training with 17 Egyptian educators on how to build, maintain, and teach using Moodle, an online content management system. The researchers evaluated the outputs of the training using the Technology Adoption Model (TAM) in an effort to assess perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use of this innovation in this particular context. Analysis revealed that trainees were neutral with regard to the ease of learning and using the new skills around Moodle, but perceived long-term usefulness of the training negatively. The lessons learned from this project and suggestions for e-learning in less developed countries are also explored.
