The Use of CSCL Environment to Promote Students’ Achievement and Skills in Handmade Embroidery


The study aimed to investigate the effect of using computer- supported collaborative learning environment in promoting students’ achievement and skills in Handmade Embroidery.  To achieve this aim, an achievement test and an observation card for students’ performance in embroidery were developed. Basic Support for Cooperative work (BSCW) was also used to support collaborative work via Internet.  Furthermore, the study adopted the experimental approach to determine the relationship between the independent variable, which was (CSCL), and the dependent variables represented in academic achievement and skill performance. The study was carried out on (50) female students from the fourth level of Home Economics department at the college of education.   Participants were distributed into two equal groups of (25) students in each.  The experimental group was taught through CSCL while the control group studied through the traditional ways of teaching. The study concluded that CSCL environment was more effective than the traditional ways of teaching in promoting students’ achievement and skills in handmade embroidery.
