A Web-Based Module: Filipino Haggling - A Cultural Phenomenon

Abstract
The Ilokano Language and Literature Program (ILLP) serves to educate its students about the language and culture. In order to meet its objective, they must find options of teaching their material to students who are not able to attend face-to-face or in-class sessions. Enrollment numbers have been down in recent years. Faculty has been discussing ways how to bring them back up. An idea was proposed to offer online courses. The purpose of this instructional design project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a web-based module that focused on Filipino haggling and was used by undergraduates who enrolled in the ILLP at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. The module was created on WordPress, a free and open-source content management system in addition to a combination of tools including: GoogleForms, JotForm, and YouTube. Design of the module was guided by concepts from the direct method approach and framework from Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction. This study involved 17 participants who are enrolled in the ILLP courses. Data collected via tests and surveys were analyzed and reported using descriptive statistics. Results indicated that 14 out of the 17 participants showed improvement in score between the pre-test and post-test.
