This work presents a comparative study covering four different courses
lectured at the Polytechnic of Porto - School of Engineering, regarding
the usage of a particular Learning Management System, i.e. Moodle, and
its impact on students' results. This study addresses teachers who used
this platform as a complement to their courses (b-learning) and
identifies some particular issues in order to potentiate students'
engagement and learning. Even though positive correlation factors exist,
e.g. between the number of Moodle accesses versus the final exam grade
obtained by each student, the explanation behind it may not be
straightforward. Mapping this particular factor to course numbers
reveals that the quality of the resources might be preponderant and not
only their quantity. These results point to the fact that some dynamic
resources might enlarge students' engagement.
