Faculty Use of Course Management Systems

Tuesday, May 20, 2003


Faculty Use of Course Management Systems is a study of how faculty members use course management systems for teaching. More than 730 faculty and instructional staff throughout the University of Wisconsin System participated in this study, providing valuable insights on how and why they use a CMS, which features are most valuable to them, and what will motivate them to increase or discontinue their use of the systems. The study synthesizes information collected from quantitative surveys, personal interviews, and student and faculty usage logs.
