Abstract

The emergence of Internet and computer science in general has established to have great roles in human's life through the World Wide Web. E-learning education is dependent on the web as an important advance in technology; therefore, it is crucial for the humans to access web applications. This applies to the learners with hearing problems as well. This study aims to investigate the deaf learners' level of interest and satisfaction towards a developed e-learning platform named e-HearMe (http://www.e-hearme.net), which offers e-ICT courses specially designed for deaf learners. To achieve the aim of the study, an interview protocol was used as a research instrument to interview teachers who were teaching in schools offering Hearing-Impaired Education Program. In total, 30 teachers were randomly selected from three schools which were executing the Hearing-Impaired Education Program in the whole Malaysia. The results of the interviews showed that the teachers were really satisfied with the existence of e-HearMe platform as a medium which offers e-ICT courses specifically developed for the deaf learners. The interviewed teachers also stated that they could share and exchange their knowledge with other teachers and students from all over Malaysia, regardless from educational or social purposes.
