Use of the “VIDGRATION” Method in Teaching Non-Law Students

Siti Hawa Harith, Norsharina Zabidi, Syazwan Syah Zulkifli, Nur’Jila Mohammad


Law-related subjects are compulsory to be taken by most university students regardless of their courses. Non-law students face difficulty in undertaking law-related subjects due to their lack of a law background. To solve this issue, the “VIDGRATION” method is one of the best supportive face-to-face teaching tools that can help to improve students’ understanding of law-related subjects. This method uses video as flexible teaching pedagogy for better assurance of learning. This study investigates three factors, namely, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and perceived enjoyment, that can influence non-law students’ intention to use the “VIDGRATION” method. A total of 101 non-law students in a public university in Malaysia participated in this study. It was undertaken using the convenience sampling method, and data were collected using online questionnaires. The results show significant relationships between perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and perceived enjoyment toward the non-law students’ intention to use the “VIDGRATION” method. As a result, lecturers are recommended to undertake the “VIDGRATION” method by integrating the flipped learning classroom to improve non-law students’ understanding and participation in class.


Keywords: “VIDGRATION” method, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, perceived enjoyment.
