Since the model is at the core of any technology in order to meet major challenges and become successful, there is a need to develop appropriate models for E-learning. Thus, to gain a better understanding of the phenomenon, it is vital to focus on emerged models in this area. Questionnaires been distributed to 120 students of Universiti Teknologi MARA Pahang in order to identify the important elements of E-learning based on students perceptions. The results been analyzed using SPSS. Study shows there are 10 elements to ensure successfulness of E-learning which are ease of use, appearance, linkage, structure and layout, information, reliability, efficiency, support, communication and security. It is believes that these elements are very important elements in ensuring successfulness of E-learning in higher learning Institutions in Malaysia. (Abstract by authors)

Summary
Online learning is gaining importance as more universities around the world are steadily increasing their use of online courses as a means of generating lifelong learning (Jacobs, 2013). If online course modules are created properly, they can assist student expectations by providing well-written directions that assist them toward remaining on a required pace and keeping track of assignment due dates (Fish and Wickersham, 2010).This paper aims to gain insights from learners as how they perceive online education as opposed to conventional classroom instruction as a means of gaining knowledge. A set of online questionnaire containing 30 items was mailed to 300 learners in three higher learning institutions in Malaysia which offered online programs. Results showed that online courses are gaining popularity as more learners favoured online learning as opposed to conventional classroom learning. Thus the findings have shown that online courses will stay important and sought after. (Abstract by authors)

Summary

Open Distance Learning (ODL) provides learners with the greatest possible control over time, place and pace of education. The educational delivery of ODL has improved greatly over the years with growing number of students continuously enrolling into various ODL programs globally. ODL however does come with issues and problems. Loss of student motivation due to the lack of learning interaction with peers, tutors and computer skills are some possible to ODL. Interaction is a fundamental instructional component to ODL. It is the most challenging element to build into an ODL system and delivery that fit-all-learner needs and requirements. The level of interactivity within the interaction triads from student-to-student, student-to-tutor, and student-to-interface (technology) has a major impact on the quality of ODL programs and its educational experience. Research studies on interactivity show that learners have a real need to make connections with their peers, tutors and the technology use in their pursue for learning, and this research reports similar findings. This article is based on a qualitative research investigating issues of learning interaction in ODL of eight adult learners in the state of Perlis, Malaysia. The study findings supported the widely held belief that a high level of interaction is desirable in ODL environment (Anderson, 2003; Tinto, 2002; Dzakiria, 2008; Dzakiria & Idrus, 2003; Rumble, 2000; Walker, 2002) and positively affects the learning experiences. In order to improve ODL experience, this research suggests that all-important stakeholders in ODL must improve the provision of interaction and interactivity. (Abstract by author)

Summary

This study was carried out in order to investigate whether mobile learning using Short Message Service (SMS) was a method of learning adopted by the students enrolled in the School of Distance Education, Universiti Sains Malaysia. As adult learners who are in vocation, time and isolation are the bane of self-study. Since all the students own a mobile device that can receive SMS, educational messages can be sent directly to their devices. This experimental study explored the impact of learner’s characteristic, learning design and learning environment to their adoptability. This study utilised two models of data analysis, the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 12.0 and the Rasch model analysis for measurement. The analysis was conducted on a sample of 105 students based on gender, age, ethnicity, programme of study and mobile device ownership. The students were from four different courses which are Bachelors of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Social Science and Bachelor of Management. The questionnaire-answer session were administered by the respective course managers in their tutorial sessions during the annual residential intensive course in the main campus of the Universiti Sains Malaysia. The result indicated that mobile learning has helped them to pace their studies. By using mobile learning, learners easily get any information that they need at anytime anywhere. Learners would also like to take another mobile learning assisted course if the courses are relevant to their learning needs. Furthermore, the SMS educational content received through their hand phone are easily remembered. (Abstract by author)
