The design, development, implementation, and evaluation of Web-based
courseware for teaching and learning are important issues in higher education.
However, available evidence suggests evaluation of much courseware is minimal.
This paper reports a meta-analysis of the adoption, usage, and implementation of a
generic, customisable, online survey / evaluation software tool—Learning Evaluation
Online (LEO). A customisable evaluation tool derived from the need to:
· customise each survey to suit each particular project,
· collect data from widely geographically separated evaluators, and
· decrease the time and expense of data collection and evaluation.
LEO was also designed to be customisable by individuals with minimal computing
experience. Templates for basic evaluation question types are provided. The use of
LEO was logged by the LEO software engine and our LEO-on-LEO survey. An
analysis of the quantitative and qualitative data generated is presented together with
recommendations for improving implementation of similar tools.
