Evaluation of the Effectiveness of E-Lectures on Students’ Learning

Abstract

With the advent of new technologies, “digital learning and teaching” has been gaining more attention and is becoming an inseparable part of new curriculums. Although most of the studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Electronic-lectures (E-lecture) in improving learning and teaching, there experts who warn against the trend of changes claiming that the ‘live’ lectures may very soon become obsolete. They argue that E-lectures do not provide an interactive environment required for learning and teaching. This paper is intended to investigate the effectiveness of E-lecturers on learning of Master level Electrical and Electronic students at Swansea University, UK. Since most of the previous research in this area lacks the students’ view on the matter, a survey will also be used to hear the students’ voices on the concept of digital learning/teaching
