University in Transition: A Case Study of Redesigning for Blended Learning
Save to My Collections
This paper describes the opportunities that have arisen from the implementation a new virtual learning environment (VLE) in a major distance education provider. It presents a case study of how the transition from a proprietary Learning Management System (LMS) to Moodle has been a catalyst for significant pedagogical redesign. In many respects, the new LMS is a Trojan Mouse which has disrupted pedagogy as the University strives to create a vibrant digital learning culture. The importance of leadership and whole of system approach to blended delivery is emphasised along with a comprehensive quality enhancement framework. Efforts to build a culture of innovation and continuous improvement are descibed as the case study reflects on the question: what does quality blended learning look like and how do you promote it? The lesson illustrated through a number of examples is that quality is living, continuous, context specific and must be locally owned—for better and worse.
