Content-type: text/html ~ Stephen's Web ~ View of What are the indicators of Student Engagement in Learning Management Systems? A Systematized Review of the Literature

Delivers exactly what the title describes. The 27 indicators "were categorized into three themes and six categories as follows: (a) log-in and usage (referring to LMS, access to course material), (b) student performance (assignments, assessments), and (c) communication (messaging, forum participation). Among the categories, access to course material and messaging were the most and the least mentioned, respectively." What I notice about the indicators is that they're very superficial. 'Number of sent messages', for example, instead of 'Relevance of message to course material'. I also notice that there's no real weighting of indicators. Also, of course, all indicators are from within the LMS, with no indication of what took place outside. None of this is the authors' fault, of course; the literature is what it is.
