Abstract

This paper presents the results of the qualitative phase of a research project that aims to design and implement a learner-centered e-learning environment to support students’ lifelong learning in universities. The proposed solution is to develop such an environment through integrating Learning Management Systems (LMS) and ePortfolio systems. These systems are already common in universities and are used by lecturers and students. Through the in-depth interviews with the lecturers we identified the problems and gaps that exist using these systems to support lifelong learning. The systems are currently disconnected and do not provide a required level of integration. They represent two separate worlds for students rather than an e-learning environment that can provide comprehensive support for lifelong learning. To close this gap, from the interview analysis results requirements have been derived to be implemented in a system prototype.
