Abstract

The effectiveness of Gesture-Based Learning System (GBLS) has been reported in some recent studies. However, not many of those studies have investigated on how GBLS mode influences the learning outcomes. The aim of this study therefore focuses on investigating how GBLS mode impacts the learning outcomes. The findings of this study revealed that GBLS's features positively affect the students' intrinsic motivation. Consequently, the increase in the intrinsic motivation leads to improving the learning outcomes; this study also showed that GBLS's features indirectly influence the learning outcomes via intrinsic motivation. In other words, this study found that the GBLS's features (interactivity and multimodality) create an instructional learning environment that positively influences the students' intrinsic motivation. The increase of the students' positive intrinsic motivation led to enhancing the learning achievements of students.
