K-12 Online Learning in Saudi Arabia: COVID-19 Impact Study -- II. An Online Learning Developmental Study with Learning Management System Context Analysis
Online Learning Consortium
The commitment to learning during a global pandemic has taken an emotional and financial toll on students, parents, teachers, and administrators. While all stakeholder groups are working to improve learning experiences and to ensure strategic planning in allocating resources and services to move towards high quality online learning, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has commissioned this Phase II Developmental Study to understand the state of online learning during COVID-19 to gauge stakeholder satisfaction across the areas of the quality framework, including leadership, design and planning, online teaching and learning, technology, training and support for students and teachers, and continuous improvement. The study highlights current practices, informs strategic decision making, guides allocation of resources to overcome barriers to quality, and identifies investments to enhance the quality of the online learning experience for students. The report has two primary components and includes several appendices. The first section introduces Phase II Developmental Study research framework concerning online learning satisfaction and benchmarking, as well as its findings and recommendations for future online teaching and learning in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The second section details the context for and nationwide launch of the Madrasati learning management system (LMS) across K-12 schools, as well as benchmarking across the international community and recommendations for future LMS innovations. Within each section, contexts, frameworks, and findings are detailed, as well as recommendations based on the study findings. [This study was coordinated with the Council of Ministers of Saudi Arabia's National eLearning Center (NELC). For Part I, see ED608877.]
