Chapter 1.5 - e-Learning Environment Needs Analysis

B). Content Analysis The content analysis gives the information on whether there exists any content that can be used whole, in part or with modifications. Get information about the content organization/structure and identify the size of the learning object to best suit the learners. Identify parts of the content which may need emphasis or presentation of some special kind for the users to understand, this has implication for selection of pedagogical approach and even multimedia application.

The content analysis seeks to identify content areas that could be enhanced, expanded, or initiated through e-Learning techniques. The analysis examined the instructional need that are not met and determining if e-Learning could contribute. Potential areas could include subjects that have a high demand, but few teachers; subjects that have shortage of books and reference materials; and subjects that would benefit from remote experts. Analysis from survey II conducted in 2006/7 has shown that most of the secondary schools suffer from acute shortage of reference books and learning materials, and shortage of teachers especially in science and mathematics subjects. Notes for Mathematics and Physics subjects were obtained from respective sources; the notes combined different kind of resources which include text and graphics. The format of the current materials (notes) is hard copy and hand written.

The following questions are kept in place to perform an analysis:

  • Is the available information relevant?
  • What is the structure of the future content? (Get to know the current structure also)
  • Any pedagogical considerations?
  • What about mode of subject delivery?
  • How much of the total content is already available in electronic format?
  • What about copy right issues?
