Changing Paradigm: Enhancing LIS Education using Moodle Open Source Software: A Study

With the advent of information and communication technology (ICT), educational institutions all over the World are leveraging ICT to improve the quality of teaching, thereby increasing the level of student achievement. This paper examines the possibilities of applying open source learning management systems (LMS) in the teaching and learning process of Department of Library & Information Science, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. Further, in this paper the role of Moodle LMS as a tool in delivering effective teaching and learning is exhaustively discussed. Through this e-learning platform, the department can provide 24*7 access to learning materials on BLISc and MLISc courses as well as UGC-NET to the students. Through this paper, the authors propose this prototypical framework that may apply to other Post Graduate Departments of University of Rajasthan to adopt innovative pedagogical practice using LMS.
