Abstract

The e-learning strategic plan for Taylor’s University is being much student centred and focuses on intentional learning. Blended learning has been proposed to apply in Taylor’s University to enrich students’ quality via interactive learning activities beyond those attainable via face-to-face classroom interactions. The goal for application is that students will learn in a collaborative, self-directed and personalised manner anytime and anywhere. Therefore, we propose a design model which is integrating Learning Activity Management System (LAMS), Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) and Flipped Classroom in Taylor’s Integrated Moodle e-Learning System (TIMeS). In this paper, we will present literature reviews on these three approaches and their impacts in the e-learning field. The features of LAMS, MOOC and flipped classroom will be discussed and applied in the new design model for the e-learning system in Taylor’s University. With the recent development of technology, we hope that the model can be used as guidance in implementing blended learning in Taylor’s University. Further evaluation studies and reflective reviews need to be conducted for its effectiveness and efficiency in teaching and learning process in TIMeS.
