Using Web-Based Course to Enhance Educational Process at Jordan Universities – A Case Study

Abstract : This paper shows that the use of web-based instruction in IT undergraduate distancelearning program is one vivid demonstration of the potential of using technology in instruction. The paper also shows that using web-based course strongly contributed to the effectiveness of distance learning by improving the quality of students' comprehension in areas of critical thinking, problem solving, decision-making ability, aptitude for detail, written communication, knowledge of information, and ability to organize and analyze. Currently at PSUT, an e-learning system based on the open source Moodle platform has been implemented to aid the university in delivering such educational contents. A survey evaluating the outcomes of the e-learning system has been conducted among more than 160 PSUT students involved in this e-learning education. It showed that the web-based course is very promising not only for IT education programs, but also for other disciplines such as humanities and Engineering. The web-based course offers many advantages over only traditional class room course, such as, fast feedback time, protection of students' identity, and elimination of bias of students' response with their grades.
