It is a cross-institutional education innovation project lead by HKU and collaborated with Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CDUTCM). A design of a cross-institutional online problem-based learning (PBL) environment using Moodle and Panopto will be introduced.
The result from students’ interaction will also be discussed. It shows that significant differences about information technology competency and frequency of using Moodle were found between students from HKU and CDUTCM. Students from both institutions are positive towards the perceived usefulness and neutral response about the difficulties in use. They are positive towards the experience in learning with constructivist approach which forms the basis of PBL. Also, students are curious in their learning and show exploratory learning behavior during the experience.
The innovation shows the possibility of achieving internationalization by utilizing readily available resources in HKU. It is an international and innovative pilot project showing that the learning management system (Moodle) is affordable to achieve internationalization without the need to travel.
