  2. 2. Key Findings of e-Content Development<br />Half (50%) of the HEIs surveyed have a dedicated centre/department/unit to manage e-Content development. <br />Generally, the main strategy (92.3%) used by most Malaysian HEIs is for these dedicated units to collaborate with the lecturers who are subject matter experts. <br />The main applications used for e-Content development are Flash (92.3%), followed by Articulate (46.3%), Adobe Captivate (38.3%), Camtasia Studio (30.8%), Lecture Maker (15.42%), and Interactive Raptivity Builder ( 15.4%). <br />
  3. 3. Those who were included in the development of e-Content were lecturers or the content experts (2.3%), graphic designers (84.6%), and also the multimedia developers (84.6%). <br />Major support provided by Malaysian HEIs to lecturers who wish to develop e-Content include advice (84.6%), support in the form of equipment/authoring software (76.9%), and training related to the development of e-Content (69.2%). So far, only one (7.7%) Malaysian HEI provides e-Content development grants to academic staff. <br />Out of the 13 HEIs who have dedicated centres to manage e-Content development, only six (46.2%) provide incentives for lecturers who develop their own e-Learning content.<br />
  4. 4. Out of the six, four HEIs provide incentives in the form of awards, three HEIs in the form of honorarium, and two HEIs in the form of reduced teaching load. <br />In general, the materials available online can be accessed easily in most HEIs (69.2%), while in six HEIs (23.1%), it can be accessed very easily. <br />In terms of compatibility, 69.2% are compatible; 23.1% are very compatible, while 7.7% are moderately compatible. <br />In terms of interactivity of the materials available online, only 3.8% are very interactive, 34.6% are interactive, 50% are moderately interactive, and 11.5% are not interactive. <br />
  5. 5. Only 17.1% of lecturers surveyed felt that they are not competent enough to develop e-Content. Half of them (50.4%) felt that they are moderately competent, 27.8% felt that they are competent, and 4.6% felt that they are very competent. <br />Most of the lecturers surveyed (88%) believe that they should be involved in the development of e-Content. <br />The main support needed by lecturers involved in e-Content development are technical support (77.3%), e-Content development software (72.1%), e-Content development grants (57.4%), and recording studio facility. <br />
  6. 6. In terms of e-Content development, five major challenges faced by most HEIs are lack of motivation among the academic staff (65.4%), lack of specialists (53.80%), lack of a dedicated team to develop e-Content (53.8%), lack of commitment among academic staff (46.2%), and lack of funding/budget (46.2%). Support from top management (15.4%) is not the main challenge faced by HEIs on the development of e-Content. <br />Copyright issue is also a problem faced by the majority (80.8%) of Malaysian HEIs in the development of e-Content. <br />
