Abstract

The combination of the process of pedagogical planning within the Blended (b-)learning environment with the users' quality of interaction (Qol ) with the Learning Management System (LMS) is explored here. The required Qol (both for professors and students) is estimated by adopting a fuzzy logic-based modeling approach, namely Fuzzy QoI, applied to LMS Moodle data from two academic years of two dance disciplines, i.e., the Rare and Contemporary ones. The distribution of the estimated Qol across the segmented time-period of the each academic year for each user's type and for each discipline show the beneficial role of Qol to shift the educational scenarios and strategies towards a more dynamic design, yet taking into consideration the inherent tendencies and attitudes of the users' interaction within the b-learning context. These are revealed as causal relations in the LMS interaction patterns between users, along with dynamic variations in their individual attitude when interacting with LMS. The findings presented here could shed light upon designing factors of educational scenarios, in general, but also to those involved in cultural preservation and exploitation initiatives, such as the i-Treasures project (http://i-treasures.eu/).
