Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // We live in a rapidly changing world in which learners are constantly being inundated with knowledge and are expected to be more responsible for their learning. Although, the 21st century technologies including the Learning Management System (LMS) have emerged, evaluations of such innovations are few. Thus, this study evaluated learners' centredness on the utilization of Learning Management System in a dual mode tertiary institution in southwest, Nigeria. The study adopted a descriptive survey research design. The main data collection instrument was created using Google form and 376 learners completed and submitted the questionnaire online. Data collected were analyzed using means and standard deviation. The study revealed that learners are positively inclined to the utilization of the LMS for obtaining learning resources with a mean value of 3.06±1.20 and with a mean value of 3.28±1.13, learners agreed that the LMS encourages learners’ centredness in terms of flexibility and accessibility. However, with a mean value of 2.81±1.4, learners were not satisfied with instructional delivery and feedback mechanisms on the LMS. It was recommended among other things that more virtual laboratories should be made available with full facilities to foster learners’ academic performance and create conducive environment for facilitators during interactive sessions. // Paper ID 5767
