A Study About the Digital Readiness of Actors During E-Learning System Implementation
During Covid-19 pandemic many fields of economy suffer, including the education system. As a response to this challenge, education institutions started to implement an online learning solution as a forced kind of innovation, to reduce human interactions. As already exist a variety of E-learning solutions, even if these solutions are paid, free of charge or own developed by institutions, the main tasks [Topic] plays a crucial role in ... remain to implement one of these solutions which needs human resources with necessary digital competences.
Our study aims at measuring the effort and digital readiness of users involved in digital transformation of the learning environment. A survey was conducted during the second quarter of 2020 and 1490 responses were validated collected from students and faculty. Several major aims were followed: the previous experiences in E-learning; the level of digital competences; the content management for the learning purposes; the quality of the interaction between trainer and trainees; the effort perceived during the transition. For the majority of users, it was the first contact with an online learning management system [LMS), but this led to a leap ahead in personal digital competences. The top-rated features appreciated by students were the quality of resources charged and the online live interaction, while both faculty and students emphasized that the effort needed for complying with the requirements of the LMS was greater.
