The Effect of Video-based Collaborative Learning among Economics’ Undergraduates in Malaysia
This study reports on the effect of video-based collaborative learning in the teaching of economics among undergraduates in Malaysia. This study is undertaken to compare the video-based collaborative learning plus hands-on method and conventional collaborative method in promoting students’ performance and teamwork skills. This study employed the quasi experimental with pretest-posttest control group design. A total of 90 students was taken as samples. The samples were divided into Video-based Collaborative Learning plus Hands-on (VBCLH) group and Conventional Collaborative (CC) group. The analysis showed that the VBCLH group outperformed in performance and teamwork skill. The students’ hand-on experiences and making the video that related with the economics topics with composing their own lyrics with economics term are the innovations of this method. They can learn through experience and enjoy the lesson. Video-based learning has gained the attention since the classroom setting emphasizes on blended learning.
