Abstract

Problem statement: Electronic learning (e-learning) System is an ideal example of these modern learning options. It provides reliable, convenient and easily accessible environment of learning. Since the e-learning is now growing in King Saud University, this new learning approach has to be evaluated and monitored to measure the efficiency and ultimately improves its productivity. The monitoring of the e-learning applications deserves special attention and we need effective methodologies and appropriate guidelines to perform this task. Approach: The development and implementation of an effective and appropriate evaluation approach based on different types of information and analysis of reports offered by an E-Traceability System (ETS) in order to improve and enhance the e-learning system and its performance to make sure it performs its mission as desired. Results: The E-traceability system has been developed, implemented and extensively tested and the evaluation can be done with automatic and easy way. Conclusion: The outcomes of the tests are relevant information delivered by the system concerning any user's actions in a standard reports format represented as graph diagram. These reports are related to the following main evaluation questions are being performed and they pertain to measure the popularity of the e-learning system, engagement of the participants and interactions between them and it can be used in support services and decision making.
