Abstract

Research shows that one of the major factors contributing to the educational achievement gap between the have and have-nots in Malaysia is the ability of parents to spend money on extra tuition outside school. EduNation is a platform that provides free online tutoring videos catering to Malaysian school syllabus. This paper reports a survey conducted to gather information on EduNation users. Data from YouTube Analytics supplements this survey. The results show that the users find EduNation’s videos useful because they are accessible, meaning that they are free and allows the students to learn at their own time and pace. However, internet usage trend in Malaysia shows that digital gap still hinders some students with socio-economic disadvantages from accessing EduNation’s videos. In the future, we will explore the use of rural telecentres as a mean to widen EduNation’s videos accessibility.
