Assessing the Value of E-learning Systems by Yair Levy

By Yair Levy

Assessing the price of E-Learning structures offers an in depth literature overview pulling theories from the sphere of data structures, psychology and cognitive sciences, distance and on-line studying, in addition to advertising and marketing and selection sciences. This e-book presents empirical proof for the ability of measuring price within the context of e-learning structures. Assessing the price of E-Learning platforms deals a collection of benchmarking instruments, reminiscent of the Value-Satisfaction grids and LeVIS index, to assist directors of e-learning courses notice the major potent features in their software. The ebook concludes with a “cook booklet” guidance procedure on tips to enforce the proposed concept and instruments within the reader’s personal e-learning software.

The results yielded 10 characteristics associated with the overall value of IS. These include: reporting cycle, information sufficiency, information understandability, freedom of bias, reporting delay (timeliness), system reliability, decision relevance, cost efficiency, comparability (format, consistency), and quantitativeness (quantifiability). Data from this study was analyzed along with new data from a second firm (Firm B, service). In both firms, middle managers were asked to evaluate each of the systems they utilize for the 10 characteristics using the same instrument for each characteristic.

18). She asserts that measuring the value system of both employees and managers, and comparing the two, will provide fruitful information on how to avoid or how to resolve issues in an unproductive workplace. Kahle and Kennedy (1988) suggest that previous studies show a causal link between value, attitude, and consumer behavior (p. 50). They also claim that there is evidence in literature to suggest that “values ‘cause’ attitudes, which in turn ‘cause’ shopping behavior” (p. 54). They emphasize the significance of value construct by saying that “without considering the function of values in a certain context, one may be missing an important influence on behavior” (p.

The main purpose of King and Epstein’s (1983) study was to explore whether it is practical to apply multi-characteristic linear value models in assessing the value of IS. The primary focus of their study was on the “evaluative judgment” of managers who use IS in their decision-making process. Furthermore, they wanted to determine consistency between the overall evaluations of “total systems” of managers and a derived overall value from a linear model that incorporates managers’ evaluation of the IS characteristics.
