Abstract:Although a computer has become a must have tool for most college students, many college students do not know a simple configuration that could help them to save some money on their utility bills and protect the environment. The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate an instructional video module as a method of delivering information to college students at the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s College of Education (COE) who use a computer on a regular basis. The video is divided into three parts and embedded in a web page. Twelve students participated in the study. This instructional video module focuses on participants’ cognitive and affective domains in terms of sustainability in computer usage. Project testing showed that the use of video was an effective media to deliver the content to college students. Participants showed significant improvement from the pre-test to post-test after viewing the module. The pre- and post-surveys also indicated that participants are willing to purchase green computers in the future. Overall, this module successfully raised participants' awareness and affected their choice to be sustainable in the future.
