OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT BY MEANS OF A STUDENT´S SURVEY EVALUATING THE FIRST MOODLE-BASED MASTER ON MULTIDISCIPLINARY VISION REHABILITATION

One of the main aspects of the new University Grades within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is based on the student personal work, thus Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) help to develop innovative educational programs. The first multidisciplinary on-line Vision Rehabilitation Master of the University of Valladolid was formerly offered in a conventional basis. We used for the first time a Learning Management System (LMS) platform (Moodle), for organizing the knowledge and skill competences designed for multidisciplinary Vision Rehabilitation curricula in Europe. 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.
