LMS Research on Trinity Methodist School
AbstractDue to the pandemic many schools have been forced to close their physical doors and embrace distance learning. The Ministry of Education mandated that distance learning must take on some form of paper-based approach. However, complaints from parents showed the low efficiency of paper based only. Many schools such as Trinity Methodist school felt the need to engage school virtually to ease the burden of parents. To appease the ministry’s demand and foster better distance learning, Trinity Methodist uses a blended approach “meaning they use both paper based and virtual learning”. Neither of these approaches were effective alone; however together about 70% of students were engaged. Trinity Methodist school engages staff by training them to utilize the LMS of choice: Zoom. This alleviated teacher apprehension and empowered them for effective usage. While each teacher would readily embrace face to face learning rather than distance learning, due to the pandemic, online teaching was somewhat perfected due to circumstance. Having to use zoom for almost a year teacher at Trinity Methodist School could see online learning as a regular part of their future.
