Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The outbreak of information in a borderless world has prompted lecturers to move forward together with the technological innovation and erudition of knowledge in performing his/her responsibility to educate the young generations to be able to stand above the crowd at the global scene. Teaching and Learning through web-based learning platform is a complementary method of conventional teaching and learning approaches which has a lot of potential to produce a more meaningful learning experience. In the School of Mathematical Sciences of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, courses such as Basis Accounting and Finance have begun to employ web-based learning website known as Connect provided by the book publisher McGraw-Hill. This paper discusses the importance of cultivating teaching and learning through such formal website as a useful tool of providing learning experiences to students in the process of enhancing students' knowledge retention thus improve their academic performances. In this paper, students' performances in the academic session prior to introduction of web-based learning where only traditional and e-learning approaches are used is investigated and compared to performances of students employing web-based learning in addition to the traditional and e-learning methods. Findings of this paper found that students' performances, specifically students whom are considered as 'weak', improve when web-based learning is introduced.
