ABSTRACT

 

Tutorial is a medium instruction to transfer knowledge and one of its applications is to provide instruction on how to use appliances, devices, or systems. Currently, only a few studies have been done on which type of medium of instruction is better for engineering machinery. Thus, for this study, the aim is to obtain a suitable type of tutorial instructions for engineering machinery. In order to achieve it, the following objectives need to be met; (i) to evaluate the effects of different types of medium of instructions for machines – manual handbook and video tutorial – on hands-on learning performance in overall and; (ii) to evaluate the effects of medium of instructions for machines on hands-on learning performance based on – safety, equipment, procedure and housekeeping. Thirty-two participants ranging between 19-20 years of age were randomly assigned into two groups – Video tutorial and Manual handbook. The video tutorial groups were exposed to four video tutorials while the Manual handbook groups were given a manual handbook. Then, participants were evaluated by performing four hands-on tasks. From the finding, there was a significant different in the hands-on learning performance between the Video tutorial group (M=95.313, SD=7.739) and Manual handbook group (M=62.500, SD=15.138) conditions; t (30) = -7.720, p < 0.0001. For the criteria; in safety; video (M=100, SD=0) and handbook (M=81.25, SD=25) are significantly difference with t (15) = -3.00, p = 0.009. In procedure; video (M=87.500, SD=28.867) and handbook (M=25.000, SD=40.824) are significantly difference with t (30) = -5.000, p < 0.0001. In housekeeping; video (M=100.00, SD=0.00) and handbook (M=65.625, SD=47.324) are significantly different with t (15) = -2.905, p = 0.011. In equipment; video (M=93.750, SD=17.078) and handbook (M=78.125, SD=31.457) are marginally significant difference with t (23) = -1.746, p = 0.094. In conclusion, using video as a medium of instruction helps participant to perform better in hands-on task of the engineering machinery compared to manual handbook.
