THE EFFECTS OF STUDENTS’ MULTIMEDIA HOUR PARTICIPATION ON THEIR ENGLISH LANGUAGE ACHIEVEMENT

A. San

Eastern Mediterranean University (CYPRUS)
A selection of well built-up schemes designed to support student learning in multimedia hours are needed to be put into practice, due to the strong belief among the instructors that using technology in instruction have a long-term and positive outcomes on student learning. It is clear that such sort of programs, when appropriately managed and implemented, positively influence many different areas of student learning and development. However, although a lot has been said about the benefits of multimedia hours which students gain by using computers in the multimedia laboratories, still the students need to be encouraged more to engage in this kind of interaction such as Multimedia Hours (MMH). Gathering data from assessments scores of students, the MMH attendance sheets and the ‘MMH portfolio discussion’ attendance sheets of the teachers carried out in Faculty of Law in Eastern Mediterranean University, conducted at a sizeable scale (n=246) in fall 2007-2008 semester. Undergraduate students of the faculty who are taking ENGL153, Legal English I, and ENGL154 Legal English II courses are the target subjects of the research. MMH focused on educational issues such as using educational software like Microsoft word, excel and PowerPoint and students are expected to carry out homework and practices, using these software programs, parallel to the educational issues taught in class and the students are also asked to discuss their portfolios, with their teachers, done at MMH in the offices of their teachers. As expected the results shows us that there is a very positive influence of the MMH participation and MMH portfolio discussion, during office hours, on the student success. The findings of this study suggest that institutions should be able to support multimedia and office hour participation of undergraduate students.
