WeCWI: Redefine WBI as an LMS's Alternative for Higher Education

A topic of WeCWI Enterprise entitled WeCWI: Redefine WBI as an LMS's Alternative for Higher Education was presented by Dr Mah Boon Yih in The Digital Education Show Asia 2016 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), Malaysia. This is the third time Dr Mah being invited by Terrapinn Holdings Ltd. to deliver his speech at the Tertiary Education/IT Leader Premier Conference on 18 April 2016 at 5:00 – 5:30 PM.

The essential features and dissimilarities between learning management system (LMS) and web-based instruction (WBI) as well as their pros and cons were highlighted, which offered the educators an alternative to adopt a more appropriate instructional tool in higher education context. Due to the shortcomings faced by many instructors in universities where the use of LMS was concerned, WBI could be a potential alternative of LMS apart from being underutilised. WBI comes with better futures in terms of autonomy and flexibility for instructors that are significantly needed towards personalised learning. Hence, LMS should not be the exclusive mode of e-learning applied in higher education; however, it is worth to consider the adoption of WBI developed using an adaptable web 2.0 platform as the future e-learning mode for blended learning.
