Abstract

Curtin University of Technology, Sarawak Campus(‘University’), uses Moodle as a tool to circulate lecture materials and other relevant information for student regardless of location. This tool of learning gives flexibility to the student in accessing the materials wherever they may be. This conceptual paper aims to investigate whether the usage of Moodle as a flexible tool of learning enhances students’ engagement and motivation to remain as a student of the University? Literature in this area is duly considered to determine whether the usage of technology such as Moodle does increase the engagement and motivation of a student towards their studies. The outcome, will determine the positioning of course management systems as part of course delivery to enhance student engagement and motivation in the University. A questionnaire shall be distributed to undergraduate students from the School of Business and a focus group will be formed to ascertain the students’ perspective of engagement and motivation through the usage of Moodle. The author believes that the result of this research would enable the University to embark on engagement and retention strategies that would enrich teaching and learning experience of the students.
