With Hypermedia Mean Improved Student Learning Outcomes?
These are actually two different questions that both are of interest to me.
- Does the use of a learning management system improve student learning outcomes?
- What is hypermedia, and is it currently used in schools/universities?
Ever since my county decided that our LMS, itslearning was out, and Microsoft Teams was in, I have been waiting for the research behind the decision. Because surely there would have to be on. Learning is too important to be left to bureaucrats and IT people, you would think.
To meet it seems more of go with the flow decision. Microsoft Teams is a powerful tool. It works well with online meetings, flexible on many platforms, and very useful for quick chats and conversations. OneNote is also a very useful tool for students, not only to take notes as intended but also as a way to distribute tasks, assignments, student work, and individual work.
How Intelligent Tutoring Systems are Changing Education
I just read this article that explains the concept of intelligent tutoring systems.
The Future of Education
ITSs have the opportunity to play a major role in the future of education, solving many of the problems that are present in the sector today. One of the greatest challenges surrounding the education of young individuals, and applicable to any individual regardless of age, is that humans are complicated and require personalized methods of learning to excel. This runs counter to what many of our current education systems are based around — standardized testing and a one-size-fits-all policy. This current model has resulted in individuals being left behind, and it fails to highlight specific skill sets within learners.
AI technology and systems like ITSs address this challenge head-on, creating an environment of learning that revolves around personalized curriculum and highlighting individual skills and interests. Experts widely hold this as the most effective method of teaching, and many nations are moving towards it. In the near future, learning environments, either in a classroom or digital, will undoubtedly consist of transformative new tools.
Does the Use of Learning Management Systems With Hypermedia Mean Improved Student Learning Outcomes?
In this study, they found that the use of LMS with the hypermedia Smart Tutoring Systems increased the effectiveness of student learning outcomes, above all in the individual quiz-type tests. It also facilitated personalized learning and respect for the individual pace of student-learning.
– Learning management systems (LMS) that incorporate hypermedia Smart Tutoring Systems and personalized student feedback can increase self-regulated learning (SRL).
– Learning management systems with hypermedia Smart Tutoring Systems increased the effectiveness of student learning outcome.
– The use of an LMS with hypermedia Smart Tutoring Systems vs. No use’ explained 60.4% of the variance in student learning outcome.
Improve connection and collaboration with Microsoft and your LMS together
Microsoft has listened to their users and are now introducing better connection between their product and your preferred LMS. I am looking forward to seeing this when it comes.
Microsoft is working with leading Learning Management System providers to create easier enablement of Microsoft Teams for collaboration within LMS courses, advanced management of Teams meetings directly within LMS courses, and reimagined OneDrive integration for course content and assignments, extending support beyond traditional Office documents to Whiteboards and more.
Easily create a Team from within your LMS
To facilitate project-based learning and encourage class collaboration, educators will soon be able to create and pair a class team for every course in their LMS. This solution is coming to Canvas and Blackboard in August, and we’ll announce additional LMSs soon.
