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 ...
Multi-dimensional evaluation of E-learning systems in the higher education context: An empirical investigation of a computer literacy course

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...
What predicts exam scores in science classes with online practice supplement at secondary education: a learning analytics study via chaid
Nalça, Ceylan; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; Sacip, Toker; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2021-2-15)
In this study, within the scope of Learning Analytics; in a determined Learning Management System, the performance of the first semester Science exam of 6491students studying in the 5th,6th, 7thand 8thgrades among different private schools in Turkey and the variables that affect the exam performance are predicted. For the analysis of the study, Chi-square Automatic Interaction Detector (CHAID) classification technique, which is one of the decision tree methods, offere...
