Abstract

The purpose of this research is to discover the characteristics of effective English Language teaching software amongst first and second year Electrical Engineering degree undergraduates in KUiTTHO. "The English Language Teacher Software" was written for this purpose and distributed among 25 samples consisting of first and second year undergraduates in KUiTTHO. The results were obtained and analyzed using 3 techniques, namely the Questionnaire Distribution Technique, The Oral Interview Technique and the Personal Observation Technique. The usage of three different techniques of analysis fulfills the requirement for the triangulation technique, a statistically valid technique or qualitative sampling and observation. This research is a Descriptive Univariate research. Therefore the questionnaires created utilized the Likert scale, which is also a discrete scale for valid statistical analysis. Using the Questionnaire Distribution Technique, 57 questions were prepared. The data collected from the Questionnaire distribution method were analyzed using the central tendency criterion and the results were compared with other research techniques used in this project, namely the Personal Observation Analysis Method and the Oral Interview Method. Through the process of triangulation, the data common to all three techniques were analyzed and noted down. These data pinpoint the weaknesses and strengths of the "English Language Teacher Software" and highlighted the important key elements that could be used for further research in the next version of the software.
