Title : Exploring the benefits of e-tutoring on student learning attitudes and outcomes
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Tutoring is a very important activity of teaching as it offers students opportunities to discuss the lecture contents and assessment or to debate on issues, concepts related to courses in order to consolidate their understanding. Traditionally, tutorial classes are held in a classroom and facilitated by a teacher or his teaching assistant (a tutor). Such traditional method of tutoring, however, has some drawbacks. This study investigates benefits of an alternative tutorial which is e-tutoring via internet such as chats with the lecturer on Facebook messenger, Zalo, Viber and email communication. Besides one 30-minute e-tutoring per week that the lecturer spends for each class on a time, students can send independent emails, messages to the lecturer at any time. A questionnaire survey was conducted to 215 students of different majors across the University of Foreign Language Studies in Danang. Participants were selected using the convenience sampling technique. The result indicates that most of them prefer communicating with the lecturer via internet to attending the tutorial in a classroom. Evidences indicates that e-tutoring is an effective method of supporting student learning and the adoption of e-tutoring stimulates the willingness to learn of students which then improve their understanding of lectures and expected-learning outcome.
