Abstract

The purpose of my investigation is to evaluate the use of an eLearning resource in student outcomes in a First Year Engineering Science assessment. Using the literature on online pedagogy I have designed an eLearning (Articulate) resource which aims to support students in their learning. Students have completed an initial assessment in the relevant content. Now students will be offered the opportunity to participate in the resource in advance of a second assessment. The material under examination in the assessment will be covered in the resource. An additional resource (a blackboard quiz) also offers students the opportunity to practice some questions in advance of the second assessment. The resources will record 'time on task' which can be considered in addition to students own motivation to interact with the resources. Students will be asked to evaluate the resources and their experience and highlight any improvements which could enhance their engagement with future resources.
