Effectiveness of E-Learning Materials in Teaching English and Academic Performance Among Grade 11 General Academic Strand (Gas) Students of University of Perpetual Help System Laguna
This research study was carried out to determine the effectiveness of e-learning materials in teaching English and academic performance among grade 11 General Academic Strand (GAS) students. The researchers adopted the descriptive survey method of research in order to examine the perception of the students on the impact of e-learning materials in teaching English on their academic performance. In this study, the data were collected in the University of Perpetual Help System, Sto. Niño, City of Biñan, Laguna, Philippines among Grade 11 General Academic Strand(GAS) students enrolled in English subject during the second semester of Academic Year 2016-2017.The findings showed that a p-value was obtained by electronic laptop, digital tablets and LCD projector which was greater than 0.05 level of significance, therefore it was concluded that the respondents had a positive perception of the effectiveness of e-learning materials when it comes to electronic laptop, digital tablet and LCD projector. However, their perception on the effectiveness of e-learning materials had nothing to do with their academic performance in English. The main recommendation based on this conclusion is that the teachers should facilitate students to learn the life skills of personalizing technology in a proper way, such as using electronic materials for research and academic purposes only. This life skill will benefit students as they transcend through educational system. Future researchers are encouraged to conduct another inquiry on the effectiveness of e-learning materials considering other variables not mentioned in the study.
