INTERACTION WITH A DIGITAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT OF A UNIVERSITY

Emily Bagarukayo, Theo P. van der Weide

Abstract

We discuss the position of the Digital Learning Environment (DLE) in a general architecture for an educational institution, and discuss its efficiency and effectiveness. Then we discuss the related generic educational approach in terms of the architectural model of competence and Blooms Digital Taxonomy when using a DLE. We discuss the completeness of such a methodology by relating the DLE to the methodology framework. As a case study and proof of concept we look at the DLE of Radboud University, Nijmegen by studying how it was implemented and how it has made the learning process more efficient. We show some figures that give an impression of the effects of the DLE on learning.
