An Evaluation of Students' Perceptions and Engagement with E-Learning Components in a Campus Based University
Ituma, Afam
Active Learning in Higher Education, v12 n1 p57-68 Mar 2011
This article explores the pattern of use of a typical e-learning system by students in a campus based university. Whilst numerous studies of e-learning have provided fascinating insights into its potential benefits, a common concern is that mainstream studies in this area have focused largely on staff experience with limited attention paid to students' perceptions and engagement. This study goes some way in bridging this gap by exploring students' perceptions and patterns of use of a typical e-learning system. The findings suggest that a large percentage of the students had very positive perceptions and the frequency of usage of the e-learning system was also very high, with the vast majority using it frequently to supplement the traditional face-to-face classroom method. These results were irrespective of gender, age and nationality. Some of the implications of the findings are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
