Dr. Shanti Tejwani, Diwya Joshi



The Present research paper is related to the use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) in education. The incorporation of internet services in education is much valuable for solving a number of problems in teaching and learning. As, in the present scenario, students want to learn at their own pace and at their own place. They prefer to get Formal Education, informally. To overcome the flaws of the formal education system, technology has created a virtual ambiance around the learner to enhance the knowledge and hence augmented the learning outcomes. One of these virtual environments is the use of Learning Management Systems (LMS). The objective of the present research study is (i) to study the effectiveness of a developed Learning Management System in terms of Achievement of B.Ed. Trainees. The research design opted for the present study was Quasi-Experimental and it was a Non-Equivalent Control Group Design. The sample consists of 170 B.Ed. Trainees of the Second Semester were selected by purposive sampling technique. The B.Ed. Trainees of the experimental group were taught by a developed learning management system on MOODLE and the B.Ed. Trainees of the controlled group were taught by the traditional method in the regular classroom. Both the groups were assessed by achievement test, which was constructed by the researchers and before and after teaching through the respective methods. After scoring, the data were analyzed using oneway ANCOVA statistics on IBM- SPSS. The result of the present study reveals that the developed Learning Management System using MOODLE is effective in terms of achievement of B.Ed. Trainees. This result is much more valuable for the creation of such LMS which are more useful in terms of achievement of students.
