- Country : Nigeria
- Subject : Education
The study determined the impact of e-leaning teaching activities on the interest of technical college students in electricity. The population of the study consisted of 724 Part II Students in Education Zone B of the 2013/2014 academic session. This number is made up of 543 males and 181 females. Two research questions and two hypotheses were asked and formulated respectively. An Electricity Interest Inventory (EII) was used to collect data with two lessons plans of which one was for the experimental group and the other for the control group. Two research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using analysis of covariance. The results from the study revealed that students exposed to the ELTA showed greater interest in Electricity contents than those taught with lecture method. It also revealed that there was no significant difference in the mean interest scores of male and female technical school students. The study recommended this approach to be adopted in schools and the training of teachers in the teaching of Electricity and related topics in Physics.
