The Effect of Assimilating Learning Management Systems on Parent Involvement in Education

Roman Yavich, Nitza Davidovitch


In recent years a new culture of online interactivity and pedagogic management through learning management systems has been gradually acquiring force, in addition to the traditional culture of face-to-face interactions as well as use of other media. Although much research work has been done in recent years on the significance of parent involvement in the educational process, no thorough research has been conducted on the effect of exposure to learning management systems that offer students and their parents maximal transparency of the educational environment, including the level of communication between the student’s parents and the teaching staff and their level of involvement in the educational process, particularly in the current period during the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis that has forced the educational system and other routine systems to switch to an online sphere against their will. The current work examined the effect of assimilating an online learning management system, the Mashov system (a Hebrew acronym for immediacy, transparency, and monitoring) on parent involvement in their children’s educational process. The significance of the research topic is particularly evident in these uncertain times, when the traditional learning environment is being compelled to make way for distance learning due to the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, assisted by learning management systems and primarily the Mashov system. Therefore, there is room to enhance research in this field throughout the crisis and, once it is over, in further valuable studies.
