Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine students' computer attitudes and experience, as well as students' perceptions about the use of Jupyter notebook in the Electrical Engineering context, specifically in teaching Power Systems. The TAM approach is used to create a questionnaire with a 5-point Likert scale, with a decided midpoint of 2.5. This is used to determine the students' degree of acceptance and perception of the Notebook as a Teaching/learning tool for a power systems course. The Standard Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) was further used for descriptive statistical analyses. Results suggest that students hold favorable computer attitudes and perception about the use of the Jupyter notebook in power systems education. However, certain factors need to be considered when making the choice of software application to be used to facilitate students' learning. For instance, in this study, students did not consider the software to be highly useful in their future work life. Furthermore, the feedback from respondents can help software developers make informed decision about aspects of the application to improve.
