TDG 2016-2017 project: Designing and developing on-line learning materials for HD(ECE) students

Research output: Other contributionTDG

Abstract

The existing literature shows that blended instruction combining online and face-to-face (F2F) learning elements has significant impacts on students' learning. To harness the power of blended learning, teachers need to shift the delivery mode from F2F to online learning. The purpose of using online learning is to encourage students to take charge of their learning and to facilitate the development of a learning community. The present study is a new approach for Higher Diploma (HD) students because it aims at encouraging and providing support to course teachers to help them change some classroom learning material to online learning material in order to create an interactive and effective online learning environment that will benefit student learning.

We used a mixed method design including questionnaires and focus group interviews at pre-course (P0) and post-course (P1) to examine the online learning experiences of teachers and students of the HD Programme. A total of 219 students completed the questionnaires at both P0 and Pl. About 96.3% were female students and the mean age of the student participants was 19.4 years.
