Impact of e-Content Integration in Science on the Learning of Students at Tertiary Level

S. Amutha

Abstract—In the present era of grey revolution, teachers’ role is highly challenging to make their students meet global demands. Instructional practices and instructional strategies vary based on the need of the learners. Technology can be imperative for individualized instruction in order to bridge the gaps between teaching and learning. Contribution of science is instrumental for the economic growth and social transformation. The Kothari commission report asserts that if science is poorly taught and badly learnt, it is a little more than burdening the mind with dead information. It could even degenerate into new superstitions. In India, science teaching needs overhauling. To understand the real concept of science, classical face-to-face teaching methods may have to be supplemented by innovative methods. Developing e-content is emerging to be an innovative method which could help the learners visualize the content so as to make them be creative and productive learners.
The e-contents are developed with the integration of multimedia components such as text, audio, video, animation and image which are set to ensure better understanding of science by the students. In that way, e-content on cloning was developed for finding its impact on learners. 60 final year undergraduate Botany students from both genders were taken as a sample. Results revealed that e-content has its positive impact on science learning among students irrespective of gender.

Index Terms—Grey revolution, instructional practices, instructional strategies, e-contents.
