Summary / Abstract:

LTPaskutiniu metu nuotolinės studijos tampa vis populiaresnės, o norint sužinoti nuotolinių studijų studentų nuomonę apie įvairius studijų aspektus, dažnai atliekamos internetinės apklausos. Vilniaus Gedimino technikos universitete vykdant EURASIA projektą, pastebėta, kad WEBER internetinis klausimynas, kuris buvo sukurtas siekiant palengvinti EURASIA projekto įgyvendinimo apklausos procesą, gali būti naudingas ir kitoje universiteto veikloje. Nustatyta, kad ši priemonė gali padėti universitetui sustiprinti jo e-mokymo sistemą. Atliktas tyrimas atskleidė, kad nuotolinių studijų studentai ne tik nori išreikšti savo nuomonę apie studijų procesą, bet ir aktyviai dalyvauti kuriant studijų strategines alternatyvas naudojant elektronines priemones. Siekdami įgyvendinti šią idėją, autoriai sukūrė studentų etiško elgesio įvertinimo internetinį modelį, kuriuo remdamiesi nuotolinių studijų mokymo procesą pritaikė etikos reikalavimams. Pastebėta, kad naudojant šį modelį nuotolinių studijų procesas gali būti lengviau pritaikomas etikos reikalavimams. Tai turi teigiamą poveikį visam nuotolinių studijų procesui. Institucijos, dalyvaujančios EURASIA projekte arba siūlančios nuotolines studijas, gali panaudoti šias priemones savo veikloje.

ENLately, distance studies, which are attempting at the best possible education for students and satisfaction of as many of their study needs as possible, are gaining wider popularity. Online questionnaires are increasingly used to get detailed opinions of distance learning students on various issues of studies. During the project EURASIA, it was identified that VEBER online questionnaire can be a useful tool for VGTU beyond the scope of the project EURASIA. An online questionnaire has been developed to facilitate the process of surveying related to implementation of the project EURASIA. The assessments helped to recognise that this tool helps VGTU to enhance its institutional system related to e-learning. Having identified the potential of this tool outside the scope of the EURASIA to project, further experiments have been carried out to assess how this tool can be further developed to accommodate the requirements of the project EURASIA other institutional systems. The research showed that distance learning students not only want to express their opinion about the study process, but also to be active participants in shaping strategic alternatives of the study process by electronic means. In order to implement this idea, the authors proposed the Web-based Model of Multiple Criteria Ethical Decision-Making for Ethical Behaviour of Students and used as a basis to develop the Ethical Web-Based Decision Support System (E-DS).Using the features of the VEBER online questionnaire, the developed Model and the E-DS System, the process of distance learning can be additionally humanized and adjusted to ethical norms, which would have a positive effect on the whole distance learning process. Thus, the institutions participating in the project EURASIA or offering distance learning studies could use the features of VEBER online questionnaire, the developed Model and the E-DS System in their activities. It would stimulate more efficient application of moral norms in the distance learning process. [From the publication]
