How Can Learners Learn from Experience? A Case Study in Blended Learning at Higher Education

Au Thien Wan

Abstract—E-learning is prevalent and it is changing the learning paradigm in the higher education. This results in less face-to-face contact with educators, lecturers, facilitators and tutors. Therefore capturing and utilizing experiences of learners to make it available or sharable to peers can help to create better environment for learning to improve learning outcomes and quality. Accordingly, learning especially at higher education, involves the interaction of human, technology and knowledge. In this paper, we use the scenario of a typical blended learning at a university setting to highlight the different types of learning experiences that can be harnessed and used for better learning. We also use the scenario to scaffold and formulate a novel framework of blended learning technological architecture to show how to harness learning experiences to be analyzed and possibly be used in a feedback system. We used analytics to produce our output from the analysis of LEs and the visual feedback system received favorable comments from learners.

Index Terms—E-learning, learning experience, feedback system, blended learning.
