- ItemOpen AccessBaseline Study on Technology-Enabled Learning at the University of Kabianga(2023-08) Kamonjo, Florence W; Ngatia, David; Tabot, Benedicta; Onsare, PaulThis report presents the findings of a baseline study conducted at the University of Kabianga (UoK), Kenya. The study’s aim was to establish the status of access to and use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for teaching and learning at UoK. The baseline study established that UoK’s institutional preparedness status can be represented as ‘emerging preparedness.’ UoK provides Internet access to both instructors and learners in some areas of the university. However, learners felt they should have Internet access in more places, including their hostels, to improve the TEL experience. Learners had positive perceptions about using technology in their learning, but they indicated the need for greater bandwidth and for more desktop computers to be available in non-ICT courses. The study also established that lecturers have positive attitudes towards the use of TEL. However, they have concerns about a lack of faculty training on TEL and a lack of time to develop courses for delivery using technology.
- ItemOpen AccessBlended Learning Experiences at Nakuru Training Institute(2023-05) Wamuga, Joseph Mwangi; Kamonjo, Florence WThis report presents the results of a survey conducted at Nakuru Training Institute, Kenya to evaluate the blended learning experiences of students and instructors in courses developed during a technology-enabled learning project and offered in the blended mode. The study was carried out among 144 students and nine instructors of blended learning classes. The courses were created and facilitated by instructors who had received blended learning implementation training from the Commonwealth of Learning. Mixed findings emerged from comparing the students’ grades in blended and non blended learning courses. Learners’ opinions of the blended learning environment were generally favourable, because the blended learning experience gave students the freedom to learn when, where and at a speed that worked for them.
