An Action Research in Hong Kong: How Does e-Learning Act as a Catalyst for Change in Pedagogy?

K. M. Hung and C. M. Mui
Abstract— Nowadays, students of the twenty-first century shake their heads to traditional learning methods which they think are dull and spoil their interest in learning. Learning is all about motivation and is the most effective when students have an internal interest in a particular topic. With the rapid development of information technology, students indeed regard technology as part of their life. As a result, e-learning and the use of online resources have become the major trend in education in recent years. This paper focuses on how e-learning has changed and enhanced the way of teaching and learning. Action research has been conducted on two subjects - English Language and Science Education. The observation reveals that through understanding students' needs and interests, integrating e-learning into lessons have helped teachers to teach meaningfully and students to learn successfully.

Index Terms— E-learning in Hong Kong, learning motivation, effective learning.
