Abstract

Incorporation of blended learning method in education, particularly engineering education is challenging due to the nature of engineering courses that heavily rely on instructor's input on the course content and hand-on practice. Transforming traditional classroom-based learning and paper work-based assessment are limited due to the lack of interaction between students and instructor when blended learning system is promoted. As a results, there is a concern raised on the effectiveness of achieving learning outcomes. Furthermore, with the closure of schools and universities campus, conversion of traditional face-to face learning to e-learning is necessary to avoid the spread of COVID-19 virus. This paper shares the experience of using web-based assignment from the instructor's view and students' perspective on the usage experience. Qualitative and quantitative methods were employed in data collection and analysis. It was found that the time for instructor used to conduct the course is reduced and average 58.5% of students showed positive feedback towards the implementation of the web-based assignment as compared to traditional method. However, there are limitations in the technical context that required enhancement in the systems.
