Dussadee Seewungkum, Krismant Whattananarong


The purposes of this study were to develop a distance instructional model via the Internet for private universities in Thailand and to compare the learning achievement of the students studied using the developed model with those using usual instruction. The instruments used in this study were a five rating scale questionnaire and an achievement test. The samples were 15 experts, 5 executives, 5 teachers, and 250 students from private universities in Thailand. They were selected by a purposive sampling method in the academic year 2010. The distance instructional model was evaluated by using a Black Box testing method. The learning efficiency of the model was computed by using the KW-CAI formulae. Data statistically were analyzed by using a t-test and multiple regression analysis. The results have shown that the efficiency of the model rated by the panel of experts, teachers, and students was also at a “very good” level and the return of investment rated by the executives was at a “very good” level. The efficiency of the model was significant predicted by the student‘s self responsibility factor at a level of 3.80 %. Moreover, the achievement scores of the students studied with the developed model was significant higher than the achievement scores of the students studied with usual instruction and the learning efficiency was at 82.0 %. This study suggests that the developed distance instructional model via the Internet is acceptable and could be effectively used for private universities.
