Abstract

Recently, e-learning has become a popular method that is widely used and implemented by all educational institutions. The objective of this research is to analyze the effect of e-learning implementation on student’s learning outcome. The study adopted a pretest-posttest experimental approach. There are 40 students in 2 classes are selected as participants of the research. The experimental groups using e-learning and the controls group by face to face learning. The computer statistics software SPSS version 20 is used for data analysis. According to the result, the posttest mean in learning outcome among the students in the experimental group is statistically significantly higher than the corresponding mean among the students in the control group. Therefore, it can be concluded that e-learning shows better positive effects on student’s learning outcomes than traditional teaching in higher education. Also, the e-learning activities are more effective for learning compared to face to face learning.
