Unchana Klentien and Weeranan Kamnungwut

Abstract—The main objective of this research is to examine the impact of using electronic media software program in teaching English for students in 100 elementary and secondary schools under the Office of Basic Education Commission (OBEC). This software program was designed to help students memorize vocabulary more effectively and allow them to form a sentence in their mind more easily and quickly. The findings showed that a high score of frequency of program use or a so-called ‘diligence score’ was correlated with the length of time students had spent on the program and the number of vocabulary and sentences students had learned from the program, while a high score of proficiency or a so-called ‘proficiency score’ was correlated with the number of vocabulary students had learned, points from the lessons’ tests and exercises, and the level of lessons they had gone through. In addition, the students were greatly satisfied with the program in all aspects, ranging from learning activities in the lessons and website, contents, and teaching techniques, respectively.
