2018 Inquiry: Students & Online Resources

My inquiry in 2018 was focused on how to make it easier for students to find learning materials / resources that had been made available via a given Learning Management System.

The full Inquiry Document is at the preceding link. The conclusion is below.

In general, involving student in decisions around where resources are stored was hugely beneficial. The advantages were as follows

  • Students became more confident in asking where resources were
  • Students would generally look for a resource (and often find it) before asking for help
  • Students were able to easily find material and this allowed them to make effective use of class time as they invariably knew what to do or would ask for guidance – so less time was wasted.
