Abstract

Based on the success of the NOF training in Northern Ireland, the Department of Education have launched a new strategy, emPowering Schools, to encourage teachers to continue embedding ICT and e-learning into their teaching pedagogies. This paper investigates the factors affecting the introduction of online learning into a one year PGCE course. Student teachers were required to complete a series of tasks, presented as an online course, which guided them towards the production of the content materials for their own online course. A face-to-face workshop provided the support and technical training needed to create a subject-specific Moodle course suitable for use with pupils in a secondary school. The evaluation revealed three factors which influenced student teachers' attitudes towards using an online course as e-learners and an additional three factors summarising their experiences of uploading resources to the Moodle. Significance tests by gender and subject area are reported and conclusions drawn for future work in this area.
