Perceptions and Use of Learning Management System Tools and other Technologies in Higher Education: A Preliminary Analysis10/01/2014
This study examines student views and use of technology in conjunction with university coursework. Results reveal that there is widespread use of Microsoft PowerPoint and certain learning management system (LMS) features; however, there are significant differences in views concerning the degree to which these LMS tools enhance learning based on gender. While students view podcasts positively, few download and watch these regularly. Whether frequency of podcast use is due to student inaction or other factors is uncertain, since most students disagree that professors adequately used podcasts.
