Abstract

This report presents results from an institutional survey regarding the utilisation, management and support of technology-enabled learning (TEL) at Uganda Management Institute (UMI). For brevity, TEL is defined as any pedagogical activity or practice that is conducted and transformed using ubiquitous and emerging technologies (ETs). Some of the ETs at UMI include: open educational resources (OER, such as MIT OpenCourseWare, the Directory of Open Access Journals, and OER Commons); learning management systems (such as Moodle); collaborative writing and communication tools (such as Adobe Connect and Google Docs); e-portfolios; e-books; educational games and simulations; lecture recording tools; and social media, among others. The report presents findings from three surveys: (i) A review of policy and infrastructure for TEL at UMI, (ii) Faculty survey of TEL, and (iii) Student survey of TEL. This survey sought to establish UMI’s readiness to transform its pedagogical practices by integrating TEL. The objective of the study was to analyse the current situation, and develop appropriate policy intervention for UMI.
