Leveraging LMSs to Enhance Campus-Based Student Engagement
Coates, Hamish
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v28 n1 p66-68 2005
People need to better understand the influence of learning management systems (LMSs) on student engagement in order to use these powerful technologies to improve campus-based education. Over the past 10 years, online learning management has been adopted by many campus-based institutions, becoming almost ubiquitous in many parts of the world. These systems have profound yet uncertain implications for university education. They have the capacity to influence the management of academic programs, teaching practices, and the way students engage with key aspects of their university experience. This article suggests an approach for monitoring how the systems may influence students' engagement with their study and how they might be used to improve campus-based education.
