Abstract


By studying the use of a virtual learning environment, previous studies have focused on automatically logged web data in order to detect factors that enhance students’ use of the virtual learning environment, which may impact their productive and efficient learning . By following previous footsteps, we aim to examine data obtained by students’ while they are logged into the virtual learning environment in order to detect frequencies and priorities of students’ choice of activities in a virtual learning environment. The activity logs are used to measure students’ effectiveness of learning to determine whether students’ activity logs, within courses supported by a virtual learning environment as part of a blended learning approach. Observed activities in this examination involved course view, assignment view, resource view,assignment upload and project upload when seen against their final mark. Examination results show that there are positive correlations between students’ logs of particular activities and their final mark.
