Quale didattica per l’e-learning? I risultati di un’indagine empirica a livello internazionale

Abstract


What Kind of Didactics for e-Learning? Results of an International Empirical Study

Moodle is among the most popular open-source platforms for e-learning worldwide. In recent years, more and more universities have approached e-learning environments and Moodle in particular. The article presents the results of a study conducted by the Laboratory of Audiovisual Technology (Department of Educational and Instructional Planning – «Roma Tre» University) regarding the pedagogical approach in the use of Moodle for university courses. The study focused on the different uses of the Moodle platform in relation to different teaching approaches, and on the concrete inputs that universities give to the international community of Moodle users and developers. The starting hypothesis of the study that was essentially confirmed by the data analysis is that it is difficult for educational institutions to adopt concrete teaching practices centered on constructivist and constructionist approaches, despite their being the guidelines of the community of Moodle users. The data analysis shows that those who use Moodle for university courses appear more interested in the solution of technical problems regarding installation, integration of modules or software malfunctions, rather than in the implementation of advanced learning solutions.
