Abstract

We have developed the Learner Interaction Monitoring Systems (LiMS) - a two-part web-based plug-in application that can interface with any web-based course delivery platform – to meet the urgent need for evaluative tools that return meaningful and easily interpretable data about learner online engagement with course materials. LiMS transforms the online learning environment into an active observer of learner engagement. In this showcase presentation we will demonstrate how the LiMS ‘event capture model’ collects detailed real-time data on learner behavior in self-directed online learning environments, and interprets these data by drawing on behavioral research. We believe that LiMS offers education and training managers in corporate contexts a valuable tool for the evaluation of learner performance and course design. By allowing more detailed demonstration of ROI in education and training, LiMS allows managers to make the case for web based courseware that reflects appropriate and evidence-based instructional design, rather than budgetary constraints.
