STUDENTS’ PERCEPTION TOWARD THE INVOLVEMENT IN DEVELOPING INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS USING POWTOON TOOL
Student-faculty partnership has proven to significantly enhance many attributes in the teaching-learning process due to its ability to expose students to higher levels of engagement, enforcing the confidence, motivation, and responsibility of the students, as well as the establishment of a friendly and tight relationship between the students and faculties. Nevertheless, the student-faculty partnership is not only limitedly practised in Malaysia, but also the occasionally reported practices have involved matured postgraduate students with educational background and significant experience in teaching and learning. In this study, the student-faculty partnership has been implemented for undergraduate students to enhance the process of teaching and learning. This is done by involving the students in developing instructional videos using POWTOON tool. The study analysed three sources of data, viz. a survey questionnaire, online quiz marks, and test 1 marks, to assess the students’ perception toward this experience as well as to evaluate its impact on their academic performance. The findings indicate that student-faculty partnership has significantly improved the students’ learning and soft skills. In fact, the students responded positively to the activities conducted throughout this experience and gave positive feedback about the developed instructional materials. As an implication of this study, we strongly believe that the findings will serve as a good start for spreading the practice of the partnership of undergraduate students with faculties in Malaysian universities.
