Evaluating E-Learning environments in initial teacher education using the online learning environment survey (OLES)
MetadataShow full item record
The research reported in this paper used the Online Learning Environment Survey (OLES) as a tool to evaluate e-learning environments in teacher education programmes (courses) in Hong Kong and Western Australia. Data from these classes were collected using this web-based instrument, and charted to display the 'actual' (experienced) and 'preferred' (ideal) online learning environments of students. Qualitative data (such as email interviews, reflective journals, and messages from discussion forums) were also analysed to gain more empathetic understandings of students' perceptions of the learning environments in each module. OLES was found to be a valuable instrument to identify successful and unsuccessful components of the online learning environments provided, and to reflect on changes which could be made when modules were revised and implemented on another occasion.
