Article Notice: A Systematic Approach To Improving E-Learning Implementations In High Schools

This isn’t a new article, but I only came across it late this past week (so I guess it was new to me).

TOJET: The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology – July 2014, volume 13 issue 3


Bens Pardamean and Teddy Suparyanto Graduate Program of Information Technology, Bina Nusantara University, Indonesia

ABSTRACT This study was based on the current growing trend of implementing e-learning in high schools. Most endeavors have been inefficient, rendering an objective of determining the initial steps that could be taken to improve these efforts by assessing a student population’s computer skill levels and performances in an IT course. Demographic factors were also taken into account while formulating these recommendations. Basic computer skill levels were measured through the administration of the Technical Survival Skill Test (TSST) questionnaire, developed by the University of Toronto. Academic performances were evaluated through several assignments designed by the IT course instructors. The main result of this study indicated that computer skill levels did have a direct correlation with a student’s academic performance level. The database was further parsed based on demographical factors, resulting in a set of recommendations to enhance the effectiveness of e-learning.

Tuesday Newsday – Madonna University

It seems one of the co-authors of an article I recently published has had it featured in one of his institutional outlets.


A Weekly Newsletter for Madonna University Employees                                              July 16, 2019


Education Adjunct Gets Published

Jason Siko, adjunct faculty member for the College of Education, had an article published in the Journal of Catholic Education, along with several co-authors.  The article, titled, Schism or Communion? A Discussion of the Morality of Online Learning through a Christian/Catholic Lens, is a rebuttal of Catholic scholar Jonathan Malesic’s criticism of online learning as being contrary to Catholic teachings on learning and the relationship between teacher and student.

In the Journal’s 22-year history, this is the first time a Madonna faculty member has had an article published in it.

The open-access article can be found by clicking here.
