Integration of e-Management, e-Development and e-Learning Technologies for Blended Course Delivery
Johnson, Lynn E.; Tang, Michael
AACE Journal, v13 n2 p185-199 Apr 2005
This paper describes and assesses a pre-engineering curriculum development project called Foundations of Engineering, Science and Technology (FEST). FEST integrates web-based technologies into an inter-connected system to enable delivery of a blended program at multiple institutions. Tools and systems described include 1) technologies to deliver courses in a blended mode; 2) application of a learning management system to act as a content management system; 3) application of the same system to facilitate collaborative course development; 4) developing a Collaborative e-Learning Library System (CELLS) web site to serve as a learning objects archive; and 5) developing a mobile multi-media studio to produce learning objects. The paper is divided into three sections devoted to 1) the e-Management of an educational project; 2) the e-Development of learning objects; and e-Learning as it applies to enhancing, storage and delivery of blended courses. It concludes with an assessment of the successes and the complexities of using these technologies in the described project. These complexities include using various software applications for varied purposes and unforeseen human factors that contributed to participant resistance to the new technologies. (Contains 5 figures.)
