Learning Management System Lms in Mathematical University Courses
Learning Management System LMS allows upgrading the educational process at the university, to intensify the independent work of students and increase their interest in the results of ongoing work. The possibilities of using LMS are considered on the example of teaching calculus at the Higher School of Economics A number of outstanding technical and methodological issues is discussed.
One of the most acute trends of educational system modernization and regional development is connected with organization of scientific universities. The article under consideration displays basic concepts of project-educational laboratories, which are supposed to become the parts of scientific university's organizational structure.
We present a classical course of lectures on mathematical analysis for the first and second modules for departments of applied mathematics. Practical exercises and preparation for colloquiums is analyzed in detail. Numerous examples are analyzed and problems for individual student work are put. Particular attention is paid to the use of equivalences of elementary functions and the simplest asymptotic formulas for them.
The description of the software with a free code and technology of its application in educational process is resulted.
The author deals with the issues related to existence of non$state juridical education, noting its potential, and in some point its superiority over state juridical education. Introduction of non$state juridical education in the author’s opinion, may take place only in case of active participation of the state which can render certain assistance and support. The author answers the questions which evidence against non$state juridical education, presenting counterarguments which defend it. The author also writes that non$state higher juridical education must receive the state recognition and gives a list of measures aimed at gaining such recognition by non$state juridical institutions of higher education.
Alongside socio-economic development of the Russian Federation, the requirements to the quality of graduates training currently increase. The article brings forward viability of e-tutoring as a teaching aid in a higher school virtual learning environment. Interactive learning is considered as a learner-centered approach.
The article considers basic elements of educational process innovative management: identification of groups of characters interested in the results of university activity, structurization of educational process parameters and definition of a set of elements of educational process innovative management based on principles of the system approach.
The high speed of development in the field of Information Technology and the fact that information and knowledge are regularly and quickly becoming obsolete have led to the situation where Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) is becoming an intrinsic part of one’s life-long learning strategy. In fact, SRL has been increasingly recognized as a core educational process. It is generally seen as one’s ability to plan, control and self-assess his/her learning progress towards personal learning goals. To be successful, SRL requires special cognitive and metacognitive skills.
In higher education, students have to study in a self-regulated manner most of the time. Quite often, however, they are not instructed on how to work effectively and efficiently in this regard. Moreover, research on SRL proves that only few students naturally develop skills required for successful SRL (Zimmerman, 2008).
Widely available ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) tools are often incorporated into the educational process and have become the platform to host self-study courses. However, even though numerous studies have shown the benefits of incorporating web-based tools into learning (Bartolome & Steffens, 2011), some students feel stressed and discouraged when using these tools; they find themselves lost and neglected compared to the traditional classroom-based instructions and study conditions. As a result, instead of the expected good results, poor academic performance and lack of motivation can become the key outcomes of ICT-supported SRL (Zimmerman, 2008).
