Abstract

The roles of automotive technology are developing essentially used in the modern automobile. Training in automotive technology education requires inventive instructional strategies to motivate learners for learning experience. This research has been carried out in order to find out the effectiveness of web-based training applications in automotive electronic systems on the students’ achievements and attitudes. An experimental research pre-test and post-test control group was employed in this study. A total of 30 volunteer participants in the second semester 2007 academic year in this study who were freshman undergraduate students’ of Mechanical Technology Education program at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi for a period of forty hours. The results revealed that a significance difference in favor of experiment group between the achievement scores obtained from experiment group used web-based training, but no significant difference was found in their attitudes. According to the results, it can be said that usage of web based training applications in automotive electronic systems is more effective than conventional training.
