Abstract

This paper presents a Personalized Learning Environment and Students Engagement (PLEaSE), a project that examines ways of embedding technology and empowering learners to become co-designers of their learning. One of the ways is to engage the lecturers in the design of the learning environment. This paper shares an initiative that models PLEaSE through a blended learning approach designed to help university lecturers to engage students online through training. Five training sessions were conducted in three different higher education institutions in Malaysia. Data was collected from the online observations, online questionnaire and forums. The feedback and comments from the participants have shown that the training is useful and the engagement model is suitable for their own online courses.
