A Critical Examination of the Effects of Learning Management Systems on University Teaching and Learning
Coates, Hamish; James, Richard; Baldwin, Gabrielle
Tertiary Education and Management, v11 n1 p19-36 Mar 2005
The rapid uptake of campus-wide Learning Management Systems (LMS) is changing the character of the on-campus learning experience. The trend towards LMS as an adjunct to traditional learning modes has been the subject of little research beyond technical analyses of alternative software systems. Drawing on Australian experience, this paper presents a broad, critical examination of the potential impact of these online systems on teaching and learning in universities. It discusses in particular the possible effects of LMS on teaching practices, on student engagement, on the nature of academic work and on the control over academic knowledge.
