An experimental study of subtitled online video supporting Thai students learning English IT Content
This research study investigated whether the innovation of online video media spoken in both Thai and English with appropriate 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. Trials of the instructional media by 33 students with a range of English skills helped to improve it. At the end of the learning period all students using the video online media passed the achievement test standard but only 54% of the control group passed. There was no significant difference between the pre-test scores of the two groups. The post-test scores showed that the experimental group had a significantly higher average score (23.39) than the control group (14.89) at the p level of 0.05. The achievement test results of the experimental group (listening = 3.98, reading =3.89, writing = 3.93, speaking = 3.91, discussion =3.91, presenting = 3.87) were significantly higher than the control group (listening = 2.94, reading =3.07, writing = 2.72, speaking = 1.93, discussion =2.20, presenting = 2.20) at the p level of 0.01 in every English skill. The students’ satisfaction for the innovation rated out
of 5 was at a high level overall (4.54), the students were satisfied with the innovation (4.67), the innovation was interesting (4.63), and the innovation was easy to understand (4.28).

Abstract

This research study investigated whether the innovation of online video media spoken in both Thai and English with appropriate 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. Trials of the instructional media by 33 students with a range of English skills helped to improve it. At the end of the learning period all students using the video online media passed the achievement test standard but only 54% of the control group passed. There was no significant difference between the pre-test scores of the two groups. The post-test scores showed that the experimental group had a significantly higher average score (23.39) than the control group (14.89) at the p level of 0.05. The achievement test results of the experimental group (listening = 3.98, reading =3.89, writing = 3.93, speaking = 3.91, discussion =3.91, presenting = 3.87) were significantly higher than the control group (listening = 2.94, reading =3.07, writing = 2.72, speaking = 1.93, discussion =2.20, presenting = 2.20) at the p level of 0.01 in every English skill. The students’ satisfaction for the innovation rated out
of 5 was at a high level overall (4.54), the students were satisfied with the innovation (4.67), the innovation was interesting (4.63), and the innovation was easy to understand (4.28).
