Studying and Analyzing the Evaluation Dimensions of E-learning Platforms Relying on a Software Engineering Approach
Keywords:e-learning platforms evaluation, evaluation approach, evaluation process, e-learning platform, LMS, software engineering, software engineering approach
We are witnessing currently the launch and development of a huge number of distance training devices, to the Moroccan universities, whose main objective is to meet the society requirements and the knowledge economy, which is in full emerging. All these devices are based on the use of e-learning platforms, whose choice proves problematic for wearers and designers devices, and this for different reasons (costs, utility, usability...), that any random choice entails to a loss of money, effort and time. Being conscious of the impact of these technological tools on learning. Thereby, we propose, as part of this article, a methodical approach, systemic, which identifies the essential criteria to remember for the evaluation of e-learning platforms, to fit the needs of both users (teachers and learners) from an analysis of the evaluation dimensions in multimedia documents, until our study is installed on the dimensions of utility and usability. Then, we followed a detailed analysis of each of them separately, in order to deduce the approach to evaluation of e-learning platforms that is needed. To benefit a maximum from the potential offered by technologies in pedagogy, and to approach of the problematic of the platform choice for a better pedagogy.
