Abstract

Web-based learning (WBL) has many advantages and its usage has extended from time to time. However, WBL also has its limitations, thus an innovative design should be provided to complement the existing design. This research proposes the appropriate persuasive features of WBL. Those features are then adapted into WBL to encourage adult learners to engage and use the WBL approach in Islamic education (WBLIE). In prior work, an initial persuasive model for Islamic education was constructed. Experts in the appropriate domains of expertise were identified to evaluate the persuasive features, and the Delphi technique (DT) was used to implement the verification process. Therefore, this paper also discusses the Delphi process and analyses the results. The process began by establishing preliminary priorities among the persuasive features that include dimensions, components and elements. To accomplish the process, an instrument in the form of a questionnaire based on five levels of agreement was created. The questionnaire was used by the Delphi experts to evaluate the persuasive features and the median score of the evaluation was analyzed using median score determination. The results from the first cycle of the Delphi process showed that all three dimensions, 23 components and most of the proposed elements should be accepted as persuasive features in the WBL design. The features were further discussed in depth in the second cycle of the Delphi process. The discussion covered comments and suggestions from experts regarding the agreed features. The redundancy of components and support elements when applied in a Web environment were identified. The experts concluded that three dimensions should remain in the model and only 18 components together with appropriate support elements should be included in the persuasive design model for WBL-IE.
