Abstract


Purpose: The purpose of this study was to find out how students respond to the pedagogy of practical courses on Delta State Learning Management System (DSLMS) as well as the predictors of students' response to practical courses on DSLMS in Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku (DSPG).

Design/Methodology/Approach: A hypothesized research model was designed to help establish the predictors of students’ response to practical courses on DSLMS. Survey design was employed for this study. All the students in the department of Library and Information science, that 131 students, in DSPG were used to carry out this study. The questionnaire was the only instrument used for data collection. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data collected.

Findings: The study revealed that students respond positively to practical course pedagogy on DSLMS due to predictors such as instructor attitudes, quality of course content, and learners' perspectives.

Originality/Value: This study is novel and has contributed new knowledge in the aspect of establishing the predictors of students’ response to pedagogical processes of practical courses on online learning system. Students' response to the pedagogy of practical courses on DSLMS is a good indication that students construct knowledge from new learning experiences as postulated by the constructivist theory
