An Evaluation of the Learning of Undergraduates Using E-Learning in a Tertiary Institution in China
Liu, James N. K.; Cheng, Xiangqian
International Journal on E-Learning, v7 n3 p427-447 Jul 2008
In recent years, tertiary institutions in developed countries have made extensive use of Course Management Systems (CMSs), software packages designed to help educators create online learning communities. To date, however, such packages have been little used in higher education institutions (HEIs) in China. In this article, we describe the implementation of an e-learning project on a campus in China and seek to determine the benefits, if any, of using e-Learning systems such as CMSs, while implementing a non-traditional approach to the delivery of an IT course, Student Centered Teaching with e-Learning (SCeT). The investigation leads to some consideration of e-Learning as the possible supplement to on-campus education in China HEIs. (Contains 3 figures and 10 tables.)
