Integration of Learning Management System as an Aid in Teaching: An Assessment

Rizaldy E. Garcia , Anjo M. Abaratigue , Nida V. Alcantara

The research delved into the assessment of integrating Learning Management System as an aid in teaching. Data were collected from 26 students at Rizal.


The research delved into the assessment of integrating Learning Management System as an aid in teaching. Data were collected from 26 students at Rizal Technological University-College of Education, Philippines, through pretest-posttest quasi-experimental and normative survey design of research. Data were statistically tested using the frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test for dependent and independent samples, and paired t-test. Results of the research indicate that the respondents have optimistic attitudes towards the integration of learning management system in teaching. The respondents performed poorly in the pretest examination but performed very satisfactorily in the posttest examination. Furthermore, the research found out that there is no significant difference between the performances of the experimental group and control group in pretest and posttest, moreover, there is a significant difference between the pretest and posttest scores of the experimental group and the pretest and posttest scores of the control group.

Keywords: Educational technology, higher education, learning management system, teacher education.
