Abstract

This paper aimed to find out the students’ perspective on Innovative Learning Technology (ILT) usage in Indonesian Vocational Higher Education. The researchers administered an online questionnaire to thirty-eight students of Business English class. Data were analyzed descriptively. The results of this study showed that students perceived the ILT integration, ILT skill, and ILT usefulness.  This study also found the ILT type preferred by the lecturers and devices (mobile hotspots or campus Wi-Fi hotspot) used mostly by the students to access the ILT.  This study recommends the vocational higher education to improve ILT facilities for enhancing the quality of learning. The utilization of innovative learning technology for education, mainly learning English, has become a necessity to implement. Various innovative learning technology applications properly utilized optimally for educational purposes. The use of innovative learning technology for education can be carried out in multiple forms accordingly to its function. Although innovative learning technology is essential, the value of interpersonal relationships in the learning process of English is at the center of that experience. However, face-to-face sessions are precious. Learning methods that integrate independent and student-centered learning while being supervised by teachers have proven to help support and motivate students in achieving their goals in learning English.
