Abstract

Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi (KPT) telah melancarkan pendekatan blended learning dalam pengajaran dan pembelajaran bagi menyelaraskan sukatan pelajaran di samping meringankan beban pensyarah. Manakala, kursus Tamadun Islam dan Tamadun Asia (TITAS) pula merupakan kursus yang diwajibkan kepada semua pelajar Institut Pengajian Tinggi di Malaysia. Oleh yang demikian, kursus ini merupakan kursus yang diikuti oleh sejumlah pelajar yang besar pada setiap semester yang menjadikan beban bagi pensyarah kursus tersebut bertambah. Oleh itu, bagi menyelaraskan sukatan pelajaran di samping meringankan beban pensyarah TITAS, pihak KPT telah membangunkan TITAS MOOCs yang diketuai oleh Universiti Putra Malaysia. Kertas ini akan mengkaji penggunaan modul pembelajaran TITAS MOOCs dalam kalangan pelajar UMS. Kajian mendapati penggunaan pelajar UMS terhadap modul TITAS MOOCs adalah baik dan terdapat hubungan yang tinggi antara faktor-faktor penerimaan iaitu Tanggapan ianya bermanfaat, Tanggapan ianya mudah digunakan dan Pengaruh sosial dengan penerimaan pelajar UMS iaitu Penggunaan secara sukarela. Kajian ini penting bagi menilai kerelevanan modul TITAS MOOCc serta persekitaran UMS sendiri dalam merealisasikan pendekatan blended learning dalam kursus TITAS.


Abstract: The Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) has launched a blended learning approach in teaching and learning in order to streamline the curriculum as well as to lessen the load of the lecturers. Meanwhile, the Islamic Civilisation and Asian Civilisation course or more commonly known as Tamadun Islam and Tamadun Asia (TITAS) is a compulsory course for all students of institutions of higher learning in Malaysia. Therefore, this course is among the courses that record a high enrolment of students every semester which has led to an increase in load for the lecturers of this course. Hence, in order to streamline the curriculum as well as to lessen the load of the TITAS lecturers, the MOHE has developed the TITAS MOOC learning module that is spearheaded by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). This paper will analyse the usage of the TITAS MOOC learning module among the Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) students. The study shows that the reception of the UMS students towards the TITAS MOOC module is positive and there is a high relationship between the factors of acceptance, which consist of Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use and Social Influence, with the acceptance of the UMS students which is seen as Voluntary Usage. This research is essential to evaluate the relevance of the TITAS MOOC module as well as the UMS environment in order to realise this blended learning approach in the TITAS course.
