Abstract

Engineering Graphics is one of the important courses in an engineering program, but in mastering engineering graphics contents, it would require more time to be allocated. Through dedicated classroom lessons alone, students would not be able to complete the assignments given what more mastering it. Mobile learning is one of the alternative methods probably could overcome this issue as mobile learning allows students to learn anywhere and anytime without being confined in a physical classroom. Performance-based learning strategies could be tailored to the learning styles of students in polytechnics. One of the dominant styles of learning in polytechnic is selfdirected learning. In order to investigate how self-directed learning students learn via mobile learning, a performance based mobile learning application has been developed known as MobiCAD. This is a case study involving first-year Engineering Graphics Course students (N = 30) from a Polytechnic institution in Malaysia. The instruments used were a set of questionnaire and interviews in which the data were analyzed to obtain the mean, standard deviation and thematic analysis respectively. The results of this study show that the integration of performance-based learning strategies in mobile learning has a positive and significant contribution to learning. Thus, the findings related to performance-based learning strategies can be implemented in engineering and other related technical fields.
