Learning about Information Technology in Education Using Multimedia.
Aris, Baharuddin; Abu, Mohd Salleh; Ellington, Henry; Dhamotharan, Mogana
The Malaysian Ministry of Education has given adequate opportunity for teachers to acquire knowledge and skills in operating computer and information technology (C&IT) in order to fully utilize C&IT in the learning and teaching process, as well as in the daily running of the school. Realizing the vision of the ministry, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia's teacher education curriculum was reinvented. New, efficient, and cost-effective learning methods were used to supplement conventional teaching methods. Computer-based learning (CBL) materials were used because many research studies that looked into the effectiveness of CBL on adult learning about information technology have proven to be successful. Based on this observation, the possibility of improving Malaysian adult teachers' knowledge of and attitude to IT in education by giving them access to a flexible and user-friendly interactive multimedia courseware package, Computer-based Educational Resource and Development in Information Technology (CERDIk IT), is examined.
