Abstract

               The use of Moodle e-learning courseware can help improving students’ 21st century learning skills and promoting self-directed learning. The objectives of this quasi- experimental research were to compare the students' comprehensive test scores before and after using e-learning courseware to provide students' readiness for the National Nursing License Examination in Child and Adolescent Nursing and Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing, explore the students’ satisfaction with the use of e-learning courseware and to study the efficiency of the e-learning courseware. The population consisted of 139 nursing students. Research tools consisted of e-learning courseware, comprehensive examination, questionnaire regarding the students’ satisfaction on using e-learning courseware. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and Paired t-test.

            Learners’ comprehensive test scores after using the e-learning courseware were higher than the pre-test at .001 level of the statistically significant difference of the both subjects – Child and Adolescent Nursing (df=138, t= 6.55), Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing (df=138, t=6.90). Overall students’ satisfaction with the use of e-learning courseware was at high level (  = 3.69, SD = 0.38, p < 0.05). The efficiency of the e-learning courseware (E1/E2) - Child and Adolescent Nursing courseware was 78/46, Mental Health and Psychiatric Nursing courseware was 91/61 which are less than the determined criteria of 80/80. The results of this study showed that the e-learning courseware is effective for students’ readiness for the National Nursing License Examination. Students are also satisfied using the e-learning courseware. Therefore, the researchers suggest that there should be development on e-learning courseware to be more effective and cover all eight subjects. Instructors should design e-learning courseware to be more interesting and able to motivate students to use the courseware.
