Abstract

Abstract: This review of literature and research into the effective use of Moodle as a Learning Management System (LMS) sought to determine to what degree instructors take advantage of an LMS such as Moodle to offer an alternative learning environment that is different to face-to-face instruction. The following research questions were examined: (a) how does content in Moodle provide information as to whether an instructor is taking advantage of an e-learning tool to create a learning environment that is different from a traditional classroom with regard to learners’ experience? And (b) how does interactive content in Moodle indicate whether an instructor consciously constructed learning tools with learners’ experience as a priority? Moodle sites of three instructors of the same course in one educational department were examined. Learners were surveyed for their perception of Moodle as an e-learning environment that is significantly different from that of a traditional learning environment.
