Journal on School Educational Technology, v6 n4 p32-36 Mar-May 2011
The study enlightens the effectiveness of e-learning strategy in learning English among the in-service teachers who are studying B.Ed in School of Distance Education, Bharathiar University, Coimbatore. E-learning strategy is a life long learning strategy for earning in-service teachers. It is a strategy of remaining in employment, which can be more easily facilitated by the use of e-learning strategies than more traditional ones. Traditional strategies of teaching English are not fruitful to the B.Ed in-service teachers to improve their competencies in English. Special innovative strategy can be supported to the trainees for acquiring more knowledge with earning money. Smith and Spurling (1999) provided a simple definition of lifelong learning, that it relates to people learning consistently throughout their lifespan, covering all life from the cradle to the grave, and which may start at any age. Clearly lifelong learning takes place within an economic context be that organizational, national or global. Objectives of the study: (i) To find out the problems of conventional strategies in learning English. (ii) To find out the significant difference in achievement mean score between the pre-test of control group and the post-test of control group. (iii) To find out the significant difference in achievement mean score between the pre-test of Experimental group and the post-test of Experimental group. (iv) To find out the impact of e-learning strategy in learning English at B.Ed in-service teachers. Methodology: Parallel group Experimental method was adopted in the study. Sample: Sixty teachers studying in B.Ed from school of Distance Education, Bharathiar University, Coimbatore were selected as sample for the study. Thirty in-service teachers were considered as Controlled group and another thirty were considered as Experimental group. Tool: Researcher's self-made achievement test was used as a tool for the study. Validity of the tool was established by the opinion of the juries. Reliability of the tool was established by the test and re-test method. Statistical technique: "t" test was used to analyse the study. Procedure of the study: (i) Identification of the problem by administering pre-test to the both groups. (ii) Planning. (iii) Preparation of e-learning activities. (iv) Execution of activities through using the e-learning. (v) Administering post-test. Findings: e-learning strategy is more effective than traditional strategies in Learning English. The study suggests that it can be implemented in other subjects also.
