Abstract :

Technology-enhanced learning is increasingly used in developing countries, but is often not systematically evaluated. This paper presents a case study at Sichuan International Studies University where an “eExamsystem”, a self-training and test system, has been used. Results show that the eExam system helped poorer students from rural areas catch up with their peers from urban areas.

Keywords :

: eExam; eLearning; technology-enhanced learning; evaluation
