On Materializing the Conceptual Framework for e-Learning: A Pilot Study


  • Faculty of Creative Multimedia, Jalan Multimedia, 63100 Cyberjaya, Malaysia


Background/Objectives: A conceptual framework is essential to ensure that the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) for e-Learning implementation is clearly identified to minimize the failure risk. Methods/Statistical Analysis: LearnCube is a conceptual framework proposed to model the CSF in multi-dimensional model. In this paper, we materialized the LearnCube framework to demonstrate that the model covers all the aspect of CSFs accurately. Findings: A pilot study has been conducted and the results agreed that the identified factors have significant influence on the success of EL implementation. In this research, a survey questionnaire is used as the research instrument to collect information due to its inexpensive, efficient, and precise mechanism of data collection. The sampling of respondents is based on purposive sampling, whereby the respondents were selected from the specific group (secondary school students) which is able to provide the data needed for this research. Application/Improvements: The results agreed that the identified factors have significant influence on the success of EL implementation especially on the secondary school based on Economic Asas curriculum.
