Multimodal and Adaptive Learning Management: An Iterative Design
Journal of Educational Technology Volume 12, Number 3, ISSN 0973-0559
The purpose of this study is to measure the outcome of a comprehensive learning management system implemented at a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) hospital in the Southeast United States. Specifically this SCI hospital has been experiencing an evident volume of patients returning seeking more information about the nature of their injuries. Recognizing the need to disseminate SCI information, the hospital seeks to overhaul the current patient and family education program and to incorporate a blended learning model. The researchers' investigation seeks to identify and bridge a gap between patient access to health related learning content and vital learning materials related to spine and neck injuries. The preliminary findings suggest that the e-learning and software development community can benefit from implementing a multimodal learning management system, and adaptive online learning content database, as previous international spinal cord injury studies have also successfully demonstrated.
