Abstract

This study used interactive e-book in English instruction and explored its benefits as well as negatives of 9th grader students' learning achievements in the English blank-filling cloze test. A questionnaire is used to investigate students' "perceived usefulness" and "perceived ease of use" toward using the interactive e-book in learning English. To find out the effects of using interactive E-book on English blank-filling cloze test, a four-lesson experiment was conducted in the English course in a junior high school. The experimental results show that although the students using interactive e-book did not outperform the ones receiving conventional instruction in learning English, the statistical feedbacks in terms of "perceived usefulness" and "perceived ease of use" on the questionnaire showed that the students highly appreciated and accepted the interactive e-book learning activity.
