Abdelaziz Bouroumi, Rkia Fajr

Abstract


We present the results of a case study concerning the introduction of collaborative and cooperative e-learning strategies in higher education in Morocco. This study was conducted using the on-line version of a one semester course designed for two groups of master students at Ben Mâ??sik Faculty of Sciences, Hassan II Mohammedia-Casablanca University. It was based on the Moodle platformâ??s e-learning tools that support these learning strategies, which were totally new for most of the students enrolled in this course. In comparison with previous sessions of the same course that were delivered in traditional non on-line forms, the results show significant improvements in studentsâ?? overall performance in both knowledge-building and skills development.

Keywords
