A considerable amount of research has been conducted on evaluating success of information systems. However, there has been little research addressing the conceptualization and measurement of elearning systems success within educational organizations. Evaluation of information systems within the growing e-learning sector is currently receiving attention, and this research study proposes a conceptual e-learning assessment model, HELAM (Hexagonal e-Learning Assessment Model). HELAM has been applied to 23 e-learners who are graduate students at Middle East Technical University’s Online Education programme where participation is exclusively through the Internet. Preliminary findings have been presented. This conceptual model is to be further improved with new assessment methods based on this model to be developed.

Assessing the influence of e-commerce item recommender systems on user continuance intention for future use of recommender system
Shahmanzari, Masoud; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2013)
In recent years, there are several research studies on initial adaptation of information systems using recommender agents. This study, however, investigates the post-adaption behavior of users of such systems. As online e-commerce service websites are attracting users, existence of a recommender technology plays a substantial role in encouraging users to continue using system by helping them to discover and find items which they may interested and subsequently prefer to purchase. Researchers found that acqu...
Assessing hospital information systems processes: a validation of prise information systems success model in healthcare
Ozkan, Sevgi; Baykal, Nazife; Sincan, Murat (null; 2008-12-01)
Although there is limited research and evidence base, it is reasonable to expect that high quality information technology is an integral factor in the success of today’s health care sector. However, the health care sector is considered to be low level investor in Information Technology (IT) when compared to other sectors. There are studies that look at the sums spent on health IT as a basis for determining how effective the IT systems are. We support the idea that the effectiveness of IT systems, is not an ...
PB-ISAM : a process-based framework for information systems effectiveness assessment in organizational contexts
Özkan, Sevgi; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2006)
A number of approaches of assessment associated with IS effectiveness have been examined, fundamental guidelines for research in this area have been derived, and a novel model of IS effectiveness has been proposed. A process based assessment method (PB-ISAM) based on the proposed effectiveness model has been elaborated. The new model and the new assessment method have been evaluated via three case studies. Specific implications have been drawn concerning the relationships between processes and the informati...
Evaluation and selection of case tools: a methodology and a case study
Okşar, Koray; Okşar, Koray; Department of Information Systems (2010)
Today’s Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) technology covers nearly all activities in software development ranging from requirement analysis to deployment.Organizations are evaluating CASE tool solutions to automate or ease their processes. While reducing human errors, these tools also increase control, visibility and auditability of the processes. However, to achieve these benefits, the right tool or tools should be selected for usage in the intended processes. This is not an easy task when the vas...
Multi-dimensional evaluation of E-learning systems in the higher education context: An empirical investigation of a computer literacy course
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2009-12-01)
Research addressing the conceptualization and measurement of learning management systems (LMS) within educational organizations as both a web-based learning system for e-learning and as a supportive tool for blended learning environments is receiving attention, and this research study proposes a conceptual e-learning assessment model, HELAM (Hexagonal e-Learning Assessment Model), suggesting a multi-dimensional approach for LMS evaluation via six dimensions: (1) system quality, (2) service quality, (3) cont...
