Optimum Use of LMS for Dynamic Mathematics Classrooms in Blended Mode


Recently the education industry has moved at an increasing pace towards quality assurance programs. There is a high demand for efficient use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education, especially to improve the quality of mathematics education. After COVID-19 lockdowns, ICT has become essential in the era of blended learning. Variations in pedagogy and assessments in mathematics are always challenging. Due to difficulties in learning mathematics, the need for innovative mathematical pedagogy is rising daily in online and blended learning environments. Through this paper, the authors attempt to provide more opportunities to mathematics teachers and students to learn through LMS. Through KJSCE-LMS (Moodle based LMS specially customized for students of K J Somaiya College of Engineering (KJSCE), Mumbai), the authors demonstrate the optimum use of innovative Teaching-Learning-Evaluation (TLE) techniques that can be easily practiced in online or blended mode of mathematics education. These technology-enhanced TLE methods were applied in the first year undergraduate engineering mathematics classroom in the urban part of India. To check the promethean ways to enhance pedagogical learning experiences by students, qualitative and quantitative surveys were conducted. Results of the survey reveal that teachers' systematic usage of KJSCE-LMS can make mathematics learning easy, effective and meaningful. 98% of the students agreed that the contents uploaded on LMS helped them to understand the concepts effectively. LMS can also help strengthen the learning process, motivate students, improve their learning outcomes, and positively impact their wholesome development.
