Flipboard, online collaborative tool, Application Performance Index


This study assessed the effectiveness of Flipboard. Specifically, it described the
demographic profile of the students; identified the perceived effectiveness of
Flipboard; and identified the effectiveness of the Flipboard using Application
Performance Index, Error Rate and Completion Rate. The study employed a
descriptive research design where questionnaire-based and metrics-based
approaches were used to address the study objectives. Students from the BSIT,
BSCS and BSCpE were purposively selected as samples. Data gathered were
analyzed using Frequency, weighted mean and ANOVA. Under this study, students
are predominantly in BSIT program who are minor adult, female, owns smartphone,
and have no personal computer and Internet access at home but with experience in
using online collaboration tools. The students generally perceived that Flipboard is
very effective as tool for collaboration, teaching and learning. On the other hand,
Flipboard’s performance is poor based from Application Performance Index, but
has good completion rate and least acceptable error rate. It is recommended that
faculty members may integrate the use of Flipboard in classrooms as students
generally find it very effective for collaboration, teaching and learning. Flipboard
should be further enhanced by addressing errors to meet user satisfaction, and its
effectiveness should be further evaluated using experimental approach.
