Enhancing Student Involvement Based on Adoption Mobile Learning Innovation as Interactive Multimedia

Mar'atus Sholikah, Dwi Harsono


The low involvement of students in online learning resulted in a decrease in their academic performance. This research aims to figure out the effect of adopting online learning innovations such as mobile learning (m-learning) on students’ involvement with digital readiness as a mediator. A total of 89 graduate students from all over Indonesia enrolled at Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta participated in the study. To determine the sample, we used purposive sampling. Analysis techniques to test research models used partial least square structural equation model (PLS-SEM) with SmartPLS 3.3.2 software. The results are significant for digital readiness as a mediator in student perception of the influence of the adoption of m-learning innovation on student engagement. Although students positively perceive that the adoption of m-learning has a positive effect, they must also have strong digital skills to complete their academic work. Besides, they must also be committed to fully engaged in learning activities using m-learning— this finding provides practical implications for improving effective and interactive online learning in college.
