Description

Online courses (OC) are considered as a great potential for advancement of the education system, thus the interest to enroll in OC is increasing compared to traditional teaching in higher education institutions. OC offer flexibility for participants, who can collaborate and interact with the instructor and colleagues any time from different locations. In addition, compared with the face-to-face learning, in OC participants can adapt their course engagement and with their professional and personal schedules. This paper presents the evaluation of the current situation of online courses, an attempt to measure the OC effectiveness and models that can guide in the OC implementation based on the student’s requirements. Firstly, the results from the questionnaires have been used in order to examine the impact of OC in the process of gaining new knowledge, and then a specific sector is dedicated to gain information regarding the framework design and aspects of course methods advancement. The data are analyzed using R software. Considering the gathered results from the students’ performance and request, we propose a new approach for online teaching methods which constitutes also the design of online courses as will be shown in the paper.
