A Virtual Learning Environment to Support Project Management Teaching

Abstract

According to the situated learning theory, meaningful learning cannot be considered outside an authentic context in which it normally occurs. Thus, this work presents a virtual learning environment that seeks to improve the quality of teaching and learning processes in higher education in the field of project management. To achieve these goals, we have adopted a student-centered approach that is supported by the use of tools of information and communication technologies. The proposed environment integrates different open source tools, such as a project and portfolio management software or a course management system, as well as specifically designed and developed tools to support administration, monitoring and assessment.
