APPLICATION OF LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO STUDY OF SOIL CLASSIFICATION

Universitat de Barcelona (SPAIN)
Soil maps and its reports are valuable means for transferring the soil knowledge to users, comprising soil scientists, other scientists and laymen. Soil classification is a tool for making and interpreting soil surveys. Consequently, the well-used of a soil classification is strongly responsible for the success of the process of soil knowledge transference. However, the soil classification is frequently rejected by the students because of the alleged difficulty of the contents, specific language and complex architecture of the soil classification system.
The present work was triggered by the need to develop new techniques of teaching to speed up the learning process and to experiment with new methods of teaching. For such, it is necessary to adopt virtual learning environment to new learning requirements regarding Soil Classification. Moodle has become very popular among educators around the world as a tool for creating online dynamics web sites for their students. This paper presents e-teaching techniques introduced in Moodle virtual learning Environment in order to increase student motivation and interest in Soil Classification, connecting the scientific knowledge with the user needs. The student interest to learn using e-project is clearly strong.
