GONZALEZ, Federico e AZZOLLINI, Susana. Cognitive and attitudinal factors implied in personalized systems and virtual tutorial in e-learning programs applied to teaching psychology. Anu. investig. [online]. 2010, vol.17, pp. 283-286. ISSN 1851-1686.
This work is about the results of cognitive and attitudinal dimensions´ survey from an e-learning program implemented through personalized systems and virtual tutorial. In an e-learning platform, a personalized system makes possible a flexible administration of contents according to students' characteristics. The aim of the study was to determine the level of effectiveness of the virtual tutoring system on significant learning and attitudes, in the context of e-learning programs applied to psychology. An empirical study with a random sample of 200 university students was made. The subjects made activities of e-learning under two experimental conditions: a) implemented on platforms with a virtual tutorial online and, b) implemented on platforms of e-learning without this tutorial. Semi-structured questionnaires were then administered to explore cognitive and attitudinal impact of the experience. The results reveal a significant incidence of the virtual tutorial system on the variables under study.
