Impact of E- Content on Achievement in Chemistry among Government Higher Secondary School Students
An innovative application of computer in the teaching and learning process is e-content. This includes text, video, audio, animation and graphics. E-content is the advancement of technology to design, deliver, select, administer and extend learning. E-content in education is a powerful tool that may be used effectively and efficiently within the classroom to create more exciting learning environment and deliver a higher level of educational expertise to students. The present experiment brings out a clear-cut idea about the effectiveness of teaching Chemistry through e content on the XI Standard achievement in Chemistry. The main objectives of the study 1.To develop and validate the e-content packages in chemistry 2.To find out whether there is any significant difference between control and experimental group on the achievement in chemistry of government higher secondary school students. Experimental method was used in this study. Investigator select pre test and post test equivalent group design, sample of 25 students control group and 25 students experimental group of XI Standard students in government higher secondary Boys & Girls school Vedasandur from Dindigul District. For establishing homogeneity, the investigator was used Non-Verbal Intelligence test developed by Atmananda Sharma. Mean, Standard Deviation and ‘t’ test was used for data analysis. Based on the results and findings of the present study, it can be strongly concluded that the students showed effective learning outcome in chemistry through experimental method only because of the e-Content developed for learning chemistry (Hydrogen). So, the e-Content on learning Hydrogen is a highly effective tool for higher secondary students.
