MetadataShow full item record
The way in which students learn is changing all the time and Information Communication Technology (ICT) is now a major element. In this research project ICT and the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) are examined from different angles such as use within the classroom, changes in ICT and the need for training for students with regards to the use of ICT and VLE. The research methodology represents the student views towards ICT and VLE. It aimed to establish if students felt they needed training overall how they perceive ICT and how important they value it. The data collection method was a survey of two hundred and thirty eight students within a public Higher Educational Institution (HEI) in the North-West of Ireland and supplemented with an experts review of the findings. The findings suggest that student view ICT as being important, many will continue to use ICT in their future careers. The data collected would also suggest that students are satisfied with the training they receive for ICT and for the knowledge of the VLE but they would require more practical experience training for using the VLE. The author would like to hope that this paper identifies recommendations for HEI management and course delivers along with identifying areas of further research in the field.
