Dynamic Learning Content evaluated in doctoral dissertation

ETH World 2000-2005

The ETH World program came to an end in 2005. This website is no longer updated and contains archival information about the activities.

The ETH World project "dynamic Learning Content Management System" (dLCMS) has produced a doctoral dissertation, which is now also available in book form. The project manager Samuel Schluep has studied the functionality and acceptance of the dLCMS platform by faculty and students.

The dynamic Learning Content Management System has been developed to support faculty in the flexible use of "learning objects". These basic elements of learning material can be in various forms and formats. With the help of the dLCMS platform they can be combined and reused in a flexible manner as modules of a larger learning unit.

An important part of the study is devoted to a qualitative evaluation of the dLCMS platform with faculty in different disciplines. Samuel Schluep also investigated the students' perception of the pedagogic coherence of a learning unit that was composed of small self-contained learning components. The overall result of both evaluations was positive. However, the support of faculty is an important issue. A number of improvements in the dLCMS platform were also identified.

The dissertation is available in the following publication:
Schluep, Samuel: Modularization and structured markup for web-based learning content in an academic environment. Dissertation in Technical Sciences, ETH Zürich. Aachen: Shaker Verlag, 2005.
The dissertation is also available online in the ETH E-Collection.
