Wilawan Jinwan, Namon Jeerungsuwan


The purposes of the research study were : (1) to develop a web-based instruction model with cognitive load reduction using creative problem solving techniques for undergraduate students, (2) to verify the developed model by the specialists. The sample group consisted of 13 specialists. Data were analyzed by using arithmetic mean and standard deviation. The research findings revealed: (1) the developed model consisted of four main components as followed: (A) the web-based instruction with cognitive load reduction comprised reduction of split attention, redundancy, and load by using modality,(B) the activities in the preparation stage included giving orientation, grouping learners and having them practice, (C) the learning stage, the students’ cognition and creativity were pre-tested. The content was studied and mental effort was assessed. Then, creative problem solving process was put into practice. The process contained six activities; constructing opportunities, exploring data, framing problem, generating ideas, developing solution and building acceptance. The authentic assessment was conducted in every activity, (D) the assessment stage, summary was made in a form of mind mapping. The design was assessed through creative problem solving process. The cognition and creativity were then post-tested. The finding also revealed (2) the developed model was approved by 13 specialists. All specialists agreed in highest level and the model was suitable to use with the undergraduate students.
