**Abstract** |
Mathematics II (Basic) is a massive open online learning (MOOC) developed for certificate and pre-diploma science students. It aims to provide a digital, anywhere accessible mathematics learning environment and encourage independent learning among the students. This MOOC is developed due to the limited mathematics courses available online which is constructed based on Malaysia public university syllabus. Moreever, there is an urgent need of this MOOC to be developed as the progress of teaching and learning STEM using MOOCs is very slow in Malaysia as compared to other developed countries. This MOOC covers wider mathematics contents such as Set, Index & Logarithm, Sequence & Series, Function, Graph of Functions, Statistics and Probability (Permutation & Combination). Through Mathematics II (Basic), students are trained to learn a lot about basic knowledge of mathematics and able to solve basic mathematical problems and questions. Students are able to use hyperlink to assess to Youtube video, powerpoint and notes to help them in learning mathematics. Various animations and videos are used in this MOOC to incorporate visual learning environment for studentsâ€™ mathematics learning. Its novelty is enabling students to understand, develop, and communicate with different mathematical learning features. In this case, multiple representations are used to construct the MOOC environment. These multiple representations include graphs and diagrams, tables, formulas, symbols, words, videos, physical and virtual manipulatives, pictures, and sounds. Representations are thinking tools for doing mathematics. They usually involve more structure and organization and provide more comprehensive learning experiences. It is hoped that this MOOC can help to improve studentsâ€™ calculations and build up their confident when dealing with mathematics subject in examination. |
