Abstract

Employing technology that students find enticing and will prepare them well for the future, may be easier than preparing the teachers who will integrate this technology into learning activities. Competition among educational institutions for students is increasing exponentially, which requires a greater sensitivity to student needs (Heckman & Guskey, 1998). Course management systems (CMSs) can build a framework for using technology as a technique of providing this responsiveness to students, predominantly in the form of communication. The aim is to ultimately create an environment conducive to teaching and learning via a technological community where students, faculty, adjunct instructors, staff, and administration can work together to achieve a common goal—produce quality graduates.
