DO YOU THINK THAT MULTIMEDIA TECHNOLOGIES CAN BE USED TO HELP YOU PRACTICE THE INDEPENDENT LEARNING?

Yes, I think so!

From the questionnaire data analysis, there are 94% of UMS students agree that multimedia technologies can help them to practice the independent learning. From that category percentage, there are 46% come from science stream meanwhile 48% come from art stream.

Why they agree?

Based the opinions from both of science and art stream students; they are motivated to study themselves regarding the one particular topic by the means of multimedia technologies. Usually, they can gain more understanding of the particular subject(s) by interpreting the information using flash, realistic animation, etc.

According to them, the internet-based material provides the independent assessments such as visualisation of the complex concepts which can help them comprehend the new concept(s) accordingly. By that, the UMS students can learn the new topic of the subject independently. Most of the UMS students are very convenient with the independent learning since they are able to access the teaching and learning material at any time by the facility of wireless at UMS.

Next, the UMS students who study the programming subject like to use the flash animation to gain the concept of object-oriented programming, basic ideas of the objects and the relationships between objects. This is because the actions of objects have been demonstrated using flash movies. By the way, the analogies between real and basic concepts of object-oriented programming by the flash make students easier to understand.



SUMMARIZATION OF KEY POINT

The multimedia applications and the related education software are deemed significant in improving UMS student’s motivation of learning. First of all, the power point presentation has been chosen as presentation software package to deliver lectures since it implements relatively simple animation with notes dedicated to each slide.

Next, the animation using flash software used in the teaching process also one of the multimedia element to improve the UMS student’s motivation of learning. It can explain and visualise the most complex concepts compare to power point presentation. The advantage of flash animations is that the realistic sound and vivid images are provided that motivate the students to replay it very often. The next factor is the publishing material on the WWW included the lectures note. Those materials are accessible by students at any time. They can study the lecture note or any additional material independently.

In a nutshell, the multimedia tools can help students to get more understanding for the respective subject and more enthusiastic and interested in learning. However, lecturers were played an important role to improve the UMS students’ motivation of learning. The humorous and thinking of lecturers can increase the interest of students and make them more enthusiastic to study. The multimedia applications need to be applied appropriately to deliver the learning outcomes and the self-study.
