APPRAISAL OF AN ON-LINE MASTER ON VISION REHABILITATION: THE APPRENTICE PERSPECTIVE
The European Higher Education places the student as the essence of the teaching-learning process. This change has been linked to a methodological change that enhances the student's to an active, initiative and critical thinking. In this new setting, the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a crucial role, providing new contexts and possibilities for the development of these skills. In order to obtain the maximum amount of feedback, students were required to perform a whole master assessment. We incorporated and examined several factors, including student satisfaction with teachers and contents, level of expectations, level of difficulty when using e-learning tools that have influenced a students´ ability to achieve their learning goals and objectives. A total of 12 students coming from different Grades backgrounds participated in the survey. All participants were enrolled in an e-learning environment in which face-to-face instruction occurred only for one week. Results revealed that the interaction of student proactivity factored into the students’ utilization of e-learning tools and programs. The increased utilization of e-learning tools subsequently influenced e-learning goal attainment and student outcomes. This survey is one of the first empirical studies of e-learning innovations within the University of Valladolid setting, but our results and conclusions may be applied to other areas. Furthermore, they can drive directions for future research and development of new practical implications. Thus, it is worth sharing the outcomes assessment from the students´ perspective, because they are the first and the final targets of the learning process.
