Mansor, Marzita (2004) Comparison between implementation of e-learning and traditional-based learning in British Malaysian Institute (BMI) / Marzita Mansor. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


This paper investigates the views of student perspectives to determine the key factors that are considered to be essential in order to enable the. delivery of technical-based courses in a fully online e-learning mode in British Malaysian Institute (BMI) Gombak, Selangor. The analysis of the whole study will concentrates on the comparison regarding the implementation and usage between E-learning method and Traditional practices which involved students communicate directly with their instructors. In this research, results concerning three themes will be discussed: computer knowledge, learning process and communication patterns that the student used in order for them to access the information through the e-learning methods of studying which can be considered as in the trial version. The tools then, which run in the parallel basis with the traditional learning process, will be compared. With the intention to improve the performance of the existing learning approach in BMI, this study also tackle several issues related to the students' awareness of new capability that E-learning can provide and also their point of view and level of satisfaction regarding the E-Learning implementation. The outcome of this study has shown that there were huge differences between both learning methods and traditional practices from students' perspectives on what should be considered as priority factors. Despite the fact that there was no consensus amongst the implementation of both methods the outcomes of this study has provided a very rich picture of what is really required for this kind of learning and teaching mode.
