Online video in computing classes improves Thai students’ English
The research investigated whether the innovation of online video media spoken in both Thai and English with subtitles improved English skills for new students in Business Computing at Suratthani Rajabhat University. Ninety-two students were split equally between an experimental group using video online media for learning and a control group learning the same content face to face in the classroom. Evaluation was conducted through achievement and satisfaction tests. All students using the video online media passed the achievement test standard but only half of the control group passed. Comparison of results of the two groups showed no significant difference between the pretest scores while the experimental group had a significantly higher average posttest score than the control group. The achievement test results of the experimental group were significantly higher than the Control group in every English skill. The students’ satisfaction was at a high level overall, they were satisfied with the innovation, found it interesting and easy to understand.

Abstract

The research investigated whether the innovation of online video media spoken in both Thai and English with subtitles improved English skills for new students in Business Computing at Suratthani Rajabhat University. Ninety-two students were split equally between an experimental group using video online media for learning and a control group learning the same content face to face in the classroom. Evaluation was conducted through achievement and satisfaction tests. All students using the video online media passed the achievement test standard but only half of the control group passed. Comparison of results of the two groups showed no significant difference between the pretest scores while the experimental group had a significantly higher average posttest score than the control group. The achievement test results of the experimental group were significantly higher than the Control group in every English skill. The students’ satisfaction was at a high level overall, they were satisfied with the innovation, found it interesting and easy to understand.
