Research methods for evaluating technology-enabled learning environments

Minocha, Shailey (2010). Research methods for evaluating technology-enabled learning environments. In: International Conference on Technology for Education, 1-3 Jul 2010, IIT, Bombay, Mumbai, India.



A technology-enabled learning environment should be easy to use by the students and should meet the learning objectives for which it has been included in the course/curriculum. Evaluating the student experience can help in determining the usability and pedagogical effectiveness of the environment. Conducting such evaluations can be challenging in a distance education programme where the students and educators or course designers are not co-located. In this tutorial, we will present a toolbox of data collection and analysis techniques that educators and researchers can apply to evaluate the student experience. We will also discuss the ethical considerations of conducting educational research.
