Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to describe the development of a practical model that emerged from the inquiry made. The initial model has been created based on experiences and literature review. After that, it was tested on the information and technology system units at higher school and adapted as a result of four cycles of an action-research work combined with a case study research. This process resulted in a new framework that helps the integration of web technologies, at the higher education, in order to enhance learning, especially for the information and technology area. The MIPO model described in this chapter presents a b-learning instructional design that relates practical information applicable to a number of situations. It combines ideas from different authors and incorporates behavioral, cognitivist, constructivist and socio-constructivist approaches, in order to obtain the benefits of each one. This model is based on what we know about learning theories, information technology and blended-learning. The information, concepts and procedures presented here give support to teachers and instructors, instructional designers and planning teams – anyone who wants to develop effective b-learning instructions.

Background

E-Learning Systems

The online environment where we can create, storage and manage the teaching-learning process is named Learning Management System (lms). A lms is a web application in which we can manage teaching process in the perspective of administration/management, pedagogical/Education and technical, using basic communication tools such as: e-mail, forums, chats, and so on, which support the interaction among participants (Pimenta & Baptista, 2004) (Koponen, 2006). For example Luvit, Moodle, WebCt, etc.
