Abstract

E-Learning is the use of electronic educational technology in learning and teaching, where there is no face-to-face interaction as advanced online learning is held in virtual learning atmospheres. Learning Information Communication Technology (ICT) is crucial in the Hearing-Impaired Education Development as the visual display plays an important role in helping hearingimpaired learners understand a task. The objective of this research is to implement and evaluate the ICT education courses constructed from the E-Learning Portal developed based on their knowledge and attitude in using the Web-Portal. To achive the aim of the study, the research locations were chosen from 3 schools performing the Hearing-Impaired Education Program in Malaysia. By doing so, 72 Hearing-Impaired Students were chosen from Form 4 and Form 5 of the Secondary Level as the research sample. In the evaluation phase, questionnaires for the teachers, the students and the expert evaluators are the research instrument of this research. The Computer Graphics course, among all the ICT courses, has the majority selected by the Hearing-Impaired Individuals, mostly for reasons as intensifies deaf-creativity. The analysis conducted through this research shows a positive feedback on the part of the teachers and Hearing-Impaired Students towards the interest, skills and the knowledge in learning computer courses. In terms of the E-Learning Portal E-HearMe, the teachers and the students were really satisfied with the existence of this medium.
