Contribution of blended learning technologies and teaching practices to student success
MetadataShow full item record
Student success and the perceptions of success are growing areas of research. At the University of the Western Cape the impact that using a learning management system in blended learning approaches had on student success and perceptions of success was unknown. The research investigated perceptions of lecturers and students of the Arts Faculty regarding student success, and whether perceptions of student success, the use of technologies and blended teaching and learning approaches were interrelated. A mixed method approach was used, in which qualitative and quantitative methods were applied. All groups of participants agreed that the use of a learning management system to enhance a blended learning approach contributed to student success. These findings agreed with other research conducted by international scholars. More research that focuses on how technologies impact on the success of individual students, and the interrelatedness of technologies, learning approaches and student success is necessary.
