Abstract

The literature in educational research has established that monitoring student learning is a crucial component of high quality education. When instructors and students are not in a face-to-face traditional environment, new forms of student monitoring must be explored. The effective use of CMS requires that instructors have been provided with appropriate means of diagnosing problems so that they can take immediate actions to prevent or overcome those situations. The aim of this paper is to present an analysis of an Object Oriented Programming course supported by a Moodle platform. Therefore, we have carried out the mining of an eLearning database and represented the more relevant results by depicting them a visualization based on the tag cloud visual representation.
