ESTABLISHING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERCEIVED QUALITY OF LMS SYSTEM AND E-COURSE DELIVERY

Matjaž Debevc, Martina Breg, Julija Lapuh Bele

Abstract

In this research, a quality of e-Learning has been measured on the basis of students’ satisfaction with e-learning environment (i.e. LMS system) and e-Course delivery. A questionnaire has been developed to measure perceived quality of e-Learning technology and didactics. Results of this research also show statistically significant correlation between the quality of e-Learning environment and the e-Course quality in case of blended learning mode of delivery where only short introductory meeting and final examination are carried out face-to-face. Students who were satisfied with e-Learning environment were also satisfied with e-Course and vice versa. The research has been conducted by taking into consideration two different Learning Management Systems and eight e-Courses facilitated with different teachers.
