Enhancing E-Learning through Teacher Support: Two Experiences
Gaudioso, E.; Hernandez-del-Olmo, F.; Montero, M.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v52 n1 p109-115 Feb 2009
Teachers in e-learning play a crucial role as facilitators of the students' learning experiences. To this end, a teacher needs to monitor, understand and evaluate the activity of the students in the course. What is more, e-learning can be enhanced if tools for supporting teachers in this task are provided. In this paper, two experiences are presented to show the convenience of providing teachers with such tools. These experiences proved that providing support to teachers allowed them to assess the students more closely. As a result, the students' dropout rate in a postgraduate course was reduced and the number of students who passed a physics course in secondary education was increased. (Contains 4 tables, 3 figures, and 3 footnotes.)
