Description

Information System (IS) higher education has faced challenges to keep the students’ academic performance and motivation to learn, especially during the pandemic period of COVID-19. Within this context, previous studies based on student-centric approaches, such as agile project-based learning, shown benefits to students, such as an increase in motivation. Mainly grounded by didactic translation theory, in this paper we termed and propose the DevOps-based Learning (DevOpsBL). We adopted the design science methodology, and its research question is: Does DevOpsBL contributes to IS students’ performance and motivation to learn when compared to both professor-centric approach? We collected historical data from 158 students of DevOpsBL modules (2019 – 2020) and compared them with the previous 1331 students’ non-DevOpsBL modules (2015 – 2018). As result, we found that DevOpsBL students’ academic performance increased by circa 4.3%. This research is relevant to IS courses that plan to adopt didactic translation teaching methods such as DevOpsBL.
