Özet

This paper presents an overview of the design and implementation of an Activity Planning and Progress Following Tool (APT) for e-learning. APT is a software based support tool designed to assist learners with their self directed distance learning (SDDL). A literature survey for the additional components of Learning Management Systems (LMS) that are needed for SDDL is conducted. As a result, the importance of "planning", "feedback" and "resources" proper-ties are revealed. In the continuation of the study, APT was developed by adding "Recommended Study Time Periods", "Resources", "Study Planning", "User Goals" and "Progress Report" modules to the "Content Administration Tool" (CAT), which was developed before in another study.
