Learner Experience of Technology Enabled Learning in Indian University
Preparing today’s learner for Global citizenship is a great challenge in higher education. Using technology to assist teachers in transmitting information in the classroom is a traditional solution, which does not help in developing learner skills of knowledge generation, collaboration and co-creation of content. An empirical question was to find if Technology Enabled Learning in Blended environments would be one of the probable solutions. If teachers try creating such environments, what challenges do they face? How do students’ react to such minimal lecture and technology-enabled environments? In order to find answers to such challenges, fifteen higher education teachers from an Indian University implemented technology-enabled learning for one semester. The present paper presents students’ experiences of learning through this approach. Total 600+ students were under intervention out of which 230 students responded to the questionnaire. Analysis revealed information about variety of formats of resources, modalities, ICT tools used by teachers in TEL, learner opinion regarding the resources and activities, perceived benefits and limitations of TEL, etc. Overall positive opinion about uses and advantages of TEL is expressed by learners. Use of LMS is appreciated by almost all students expressing mainly that re-visiting resources as per need and convenience was possible due to LMS. Online discussions boosted students’ confidence. Resources other than teachers’ lectures allowed learners to understand different perspectives. Learner-centred activities allowed them to express their own views. // Paper ID 217
