Abstract

This research paper is based on an on-going PhD research on Using VLE to support teaching and learning, and to bridge digital divide in rural communities in Ghana. This paper focuses only on the aspect of supporting teaching and learning using VLE. The research environment is a local community college in a rural community in Ghana. Teaching with Moodle, a learning management system and WizIQ, a web-conferencing application was introduced in a pilot project. Initial orientation was given to student participants and two support staff prior to actual commencement of the research project. Research methodology used was Participatory Action Research and the data collection method was participant observation. Cycles were carefully planned, implemented, observations made, and data collected via observations, interviews, and focus group. It emerged that level of technology available is unable to support content delivery using web conferencing; however participants were able to take advantage of Moodle courseware aspect to improve performance and enrich learning experience.
