E-learning, with all its convenience and benefits to its users, also has its own problems. This dissertation is about incorporating new ways of improving edveNTUre using design patterns so that the efficiency and effectiveness of the system when used by the students, instructors and administrative people in NTU can be increased.. The overall aim of the study was to investigate whether different types of design features provided in edveNTUre, an e-learning environment at a local university, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), might be effective for learning and to find out how effective these design patterns could be used to enhance users' experiences with edveNTUre. It is hoped that such solutions could increase the efficiency and effectiveness of in edveNTUre when used by the students, instructors and administrative staff at NTU.
