Abstract—Rapid changes in ongoing Information
Technology (IT) education demand improvement in the existing
learning modules. This is significantly important for
Fundamentals of Computer Science (or Asas Sains Komputer
(ASK)), a subject taught in secondary school level to provide
basic knowledge and understandings of Computer Science at
earlier stage of learning. Realizing its importance, a study was
conducted to evaluate design learning module of ASK to
increase students interest in Algorithms. Done from teachers
perspectives, the study used a qualitative approach by
conducting interviews with five experts from educational
background in order to validate the design learning module.
The results of the study based on the scores and comments given
by the experts regarding ASK design learning module are
positive. The feedbacks from the research contribute in
development of ASK module thus improving students interest
and understandings during the learning process. This also helps
in enhancing the quality of Science, Technology, Engineering,
and Mathematics (STEM) education as stated in the Malaysia
Education Blueprint 2013-2025.
