Abstract

Faculty of Computer Science Universitas Indonesia (Fasilkom UI) implemented an e-Learning environment, Student Centered E-Learning Environment (SCELE), to complement the conventional approach of teaching and learning since 2005. Evaluations regarding effectiveness of the e-Learning system used by lecturers have been made. However, the students have not evaluated yet the user experience while using the system. The materials posted in SCELE include PowerPoint slides, multimedia contents, and enrichment materials (e.g., links to online articles). Most of lecturers use discussion forums in their courses to encourage students to participate in active learning setting. Staff and lecturers sometimes post academic-related announcements on the SCELE homepage. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the user experience while students use the SCELE. A multi-methods approach is used to conduct the study. 113 students enrolled in Computer Science program were invited to evaluate SCELE. This study will benefit program and center of learning resources administrators, and learning management system developers to enhance the presence of e-Learning system in their institutions. Findings of the current study may also be valuable for universities and high schools which are using computer-based learning environments. Specifically in developing countries, many academic institutions are still struggling with internet bandwidth to provide high quality interactions and learning experience.
