Abstract

To develop the multimedia instructional material for robotics education, this study tried to develop a multimedia instructional material for robotics education and applied to a course to figure out the usability and utility. In this multimedia instructional material, there are four main sessions: adventure of the robot, assembly, programming, and demonstration video. The multimedia instructional material was designed to motivate students by an interesting adventure story, to introduce the assembly of a robot to complete the mission introduced in the adventure story, to introduce the programming of the operations of a robot to command the robot to complete the mission introduced in the adventure story, and to demonstrate the process of completing a mission. Finally, triangulation method was applied in this study to assess the user perception of the multimedia instructional material for robotics education. The triangulation data was obtained by observation, qualitative analysis of feedback generated by a class blog, and quantitative analysis of student perception of the multimedia instructional material for robotics education. Accordingly, the analysis results indicated that the multimedia instructional material for robotics education was effective and achieved high student satisfaction.
