Abstract—The purpose of this research is to design a framework for a Digital Media Searching System that can yield results in an expedient and accurate manner and with suitable content for the application to internet-based education at the basic, i.e., primary and secondary, level. The research methodology consisted of two steps. First, a questionnaire survey was conducted with 731 respondents. Data were scored on a 1 to 5 rating scale and analyzed using frequencies, percentages, means and standard deviations. The respondents reported experiencing moderate problems when using the existing digital media repositories (x ̅ =3.25, S.D. = 0.9) and digital media as educational resources (x ̅ = 3.23, S.D.=0.99), while the demands for both were rather high, namely the repositories (x ̅= 4.09, S.D.=0.85) and digital media (x ̅ = 4.07, S.D.=0.95) respectively. Second, the researchers interviewed twenty-five experts during a focus group discussion from which a content analysis was done as part of defining a framework for a desirable searching system that would cater to their demands. Finally, eight specialists were asked to evaluate the new framework, which showed a high satisfaction level (x ̅ =4.50, S.D.=0.51).

Index Terms—Digital media, digital media searching system, internet.
