Pombo, Lucia; Loureiro, Maria Joao; Moreira, Antonio
Educational Media International, v47 n3 p217-229 Sep 2010
This study examines students' views on a blended learning module developed and offered at the University of Aveiro. The paper presents the module and the strategies, tools, activities and assessment. In order to examine the effectiveness of the module, data were collected from reflections, postings and questionnaires. Findings document students' opinions concerning the module, the activities and their learning. Students valued the module but expressed concerns in using the wiki tool, assessing collaborative work and in engaging in peer assessment activities. The results have practical implications for the design of collaborative activities and innovative assessment in blended learning environments. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
