gradsCOOL: A Learning Management System for Bulacan State University Graduate School
Abstract— Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a vital role in the curriculum design of the various educational institutions. It provides vital ways to improve the teaching and learning approach, making available resources easy to share and acquire. The major problem of the study was to develop learning management system for the Graduate School of Bulacan State University. It made use of ADDIE system development model, which consists of five phases: (1) analysis; (2) design; (3) development; (4) implementation; and (5) evaluation. Significantly, gradsCOOL (graduate school COllaborative Outcomebased Learning) is a Learning Management System (LMS) characterized by the following essential features: (1) centralized learning management; (2) mobile learning; (4) course management; and (5) tracking and reporting. Its acceptability was examined from multiple perspectives with respect to its (1) functionality; (2) reliability; (3) usability; (4) maintainability; and (5) portability. Moreover, considering learning management system as an important factor in successful ICT implementation in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) setting, with the incorporated significant features and the acceptability of the software, it was recommended that this new mode of instruction be implemented in Graduate School of Bulacan State University. The adoption of the developed LMS into teaching and learning is of great importance as the school moves towards changing its delivery method to include a component of online learning, enhancing the delivery of instruction achieving better outcomes.
