Abstract

Learning Management Systems (LMS) have become the principal resource for collaboration among lecturers and students in Higher Education. A research line is the analysis of LMS users’ behaviour with the goal of developing new methodological proposals to improve the teaching process. In particular, this paper analyses the lecturers’ behaviour and proposes an alternative vision of teaching evaluation on the use of LMS. Two methods are employed:(1) surveys, to measure the students’ perception on the lecturers’ methodology applied in the LMS; and (2) a statistical analysis of the events generated by lecturers in the LMS. The data have been obtained from degrees that are imparted in different teaching modalities (on-campus, blended and online). These data have been compared over the time period of the two academic years. Among some of the findings of the study, it is observed that students may negatively perceive an excessive monitoring and availability of resources provided by lecturers.
