Evaluation of eLearning - A study of Undergraduate Agricultural Economics course


  • Wocken, Meike
  • Jens-Peter, Loy


In this study we evaluate the combination of traditional classroom education with additional content and support provided by an online Learn Content Management System (LCMS). Main focuses are individual learning characteristics and eLearning aspects. Findings are that not all dimensions of eLearning success meet the expected outcomes. Using achieved scores in examinations to measure successful application of eLearning is suitable only to a limited extent. eLearning objectives have to be defined with respect to eLearning's target group.
