Case Study
In the present context, in which there is a significant concern regarding the use of ICT in higher education, within the MISI proceedings of April-May 2010, DANUBIUS University of Galati participated along with other 29 universities around the world in setting up a one-piece image of using of these technologies. The starting point was the achievement of a survey applied to both educators and students from the participating universities. MISI, or the Multi-Institutional Survey Initiative, is an endeavour among Sakai institutions raising similar questions for instructors and students across Sakai implementation facilities in order to compare and contrast similarities and differences between institutions as well as to provide feedback to improve Sakai development in the future. Starting from the educating type in which participation activities unfold (full time, extra mural, distance education), this paper aims at interpreting the responses obtained from the perspective of both teachers and students on the appropriateness of using certain software or equipment in teaching and/or researching activities. Also, we are concerned in identifying and analysing the objectives of using information technology in our educational institution. We also propose to evaluate as most important the use of ICT and its relevant benefits identified by respondents. We aim at highlighting within our case study the elements of our analysis based on the DANUBIUS Online e-learning platform.
