Abstract

Higher Education institutions employ information
systems (IS) to support learning and assessment. A
number of drivers affect the degree to which these
systems add value to the educational experience.
This paper investigates some of the key drivers and
decisions that can affect the success of these
ventures. It draws from a number of case studies in
the UK and focuses on those aspects of IS that
support the delivery of courses. In particular it
focuses on the use of learning outcomes to assess
student performance in a unit and analyses early
feedback from a pilot project to use a virtual
learning environment to facilitate this assessment
methodology.
