Abstract

This study focuses on teaching and learning in higher education. The rapid growth of e-Learning Management Systems [eLMS} made online teaching and learning an increasingly important topic in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) curricula. The present study investigated the use of classnetwork.net by student teachers enrolled in various teacher education programs. The sample consisted of 101 teacher education students who had an opportunity to use classnetwork.net (an online tool for uploading and downloading lecture notes and teaching materials). Classnetwork.net is an alternative mode of knowledge delivery to student teachers, an innovation in Universiti Brunei Darussalam. A survey method was used to elicit answers to the following research questions. How does classnetwork.net help in teaching and learning of teacher education students? How effective is this delivery system in teaching and learning in higher educational institutions? The real strength of elearning, aside from its ease of use, lies in the set of student and administrative tools it offers. A brief description that was adapted from literature search on the pertinent features of classnetwork.net to further enhance teaching and learning will be outlined. This study will analyze development of online skills (certain aspects) as guided by Cory and Watkins (2004), in line with number of hours of computer usage and frequency of accessing the content in classnetwork.net. Educational innovation for sustainable development will be highlighted in the discussions. An effective communication is judged through correlation between online skills and number of hours and online skills and frequency of access. The study will report on the effective communication among users in line with their capability and willingness to explore the knowledge.
