Abstract

To better illustrate how an online learning environment can be used as scaffolding for the purposes of Discovery Learning, the learning management system (LMS) known as Axio Learning was reviewed and evaluated. Axio Learning, developed from the ground up by Kansas State University (student population of about 25,000) since 1997, is a modern, full-featured learning/course management system.

Lms Tools For Discovery Learning

Although the Axio Learning LMS has many tools, this document will focus on the tools: Announcements, File Management Tools, Gating Tool, Interactive Tools, Student Grouping, Assessment Suite, Course Statistics and Recent Activity (see Figure 1). Information is presented in this order as a logical student progression through an online Discovery Learning course. These tools have great possibilities for use as scaffolding and guidance manipulators with regards to Discovery Learning.
