International Journal of Web-Based Learning and Teaching Technologies, v11 n1 p35-50 2016
Students in the digital era are habitual of using digital devices not only for playing and interacting with their friends and peers, but also as a tool for education and learning. These digital natives are highly obsessed with the internet driven portable devices and always demand for a multimedia rich content. This specific demand needs to be addressed by college teachers in the teaching-learning pedagogy design and implementation. The integration of pervasive computing in traditional classroom pedagogy can boost new learning experience for cyber savvy students in higher education. Learning Management System (LMS) as a pervasive computing can be embedded in classroom pedagogy to support learning inside and outside the classroom. LMS can play a supportive role to teachers and administrators in higher education to facilitate them in their work. This becomes more significant to the teachers and administrators, when the LMS is based upon the cloud computing platform. This paper explores the significance of various components of cloud-based open source Moodle Learning Management System with a specific focus on teachers and administrators in higher education. A learning theory approach has been followed to map the requirements of the teachers and the administrators and specific cases and examples have been presented.
