Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed educational institutions to adopt digital learning for an extended period. This research studies the effectiveness of digital learning practices based on student feedback data collected for two Information Systems design courses: human interaction design and solution architecture design. This paper leverages the data to analyze the effectiveness of a set of digital learning practices: ZOOM lectures, polling or Kahoot questions, self-reflection, virtual exercises and virtual mentorship. Our research questions are on the effectiveness of these learning practices to keep the student’s interest and learn the course materials. The research compares each learning practice and the overall learning experience compared to face-to-face. Our result shows that polling or Kahoot questions are the best digital learning practice to keep students interested and learn content. Mentorship works well to keep student interest, while ZOOM lectures and virtual exercises work well for the student to learn content.
