Prioritizing the Implementation of E-Learning Tools to Enhance the Post-Secondary Learning Environment
Percival, Jennifer Catherine; Muirhead, Bill
Journal of Distance Education, v23 n1 p89-106 2009
The implementation of both blended learning and web-based programs is becoming more prevalent within higher education in Canada. Thus, there is increasing reliance upon e-learning tools to support student learning in a variety of teaching environments. Typically, budgetary and programmatic decisions regarding the investment of e-learning resources are made by information technology (IT) administrators and/or professors. However, students are the primary beneficiary of most IT investments. This study examined Business and IT students' usage patterns and perceptions related to a suite of e-learning tools through open ended and Likert scale survey questions. Findings will assist post-secondary decision-makers in prioritizing IT investments. Further, study results will ensure that the design and implementation of e-learning tools address the needs and usage patterns of the primary client--the student. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
