Abstract


Mobile blog or “moblog” provides a coherent purpose for strategic educational change through lifelong education and the creation of a knowledge society. Many studies have been conducted on using conventional blogs in teaching and learning yet only few have focused on moblogs. Moblogs allow trainers to empower themselves through the acquisition of both explicit and tacit knowledge. Thus, this study aims at designing, developing and implementing moblogs as a platform for a new hybrid e-training approach, which was tested to generate a two-stage model for meaningful hybrid e-training. The data were collected from 213 Information Communication Technology (ICT) trainees which were subsequently tested using confirmatory factor analysis with AMOS 7.0 to obtain the best-fit measurement model for an integrated meaningful hybrid e-training model using moblogs. The results revealed that: (i) hybrid e-training influenced the achievement of meaningful e-training; (ii) learning styles influenced the acceptance of hybrid e-training; and (iii) learning styles preferences influenced the achievement of meaningful e-training.
