Lopes, V. (2008) Course Management Systems and Campus-Based Learning North York ON: Seneca College

One of the rare research reports that looks at the use of a learning management system for campus-based teaching, and its impact on students’ learning.

The main finding was that faculty used the LMS mainly for providing course information, and very little for direct interaction with or between students. However, for students, the structure that the LMS provided was essential for them in managing their studies.

(Thanks to Tom Carey for directing me to this study).


  1. Hi Tony

    Just as an FYI – This article is based on my dissertation – The Efficacy of a Course Management System in Learning: Perceptions of Students and Faculty at one Ontario College.

    I am honoured and delighted that you have referred to it here.
    Thank you!
