ABSTRACT
One of the ways for students in sustaining their communication in a collaborative learning
environment is through hands-on activity. Therefore, the objectives of the study were to analyse the
content of the communication among students involved and how they sustain their communication
in the collaborative learning task given. Students were divided in pairs and they were tasked to
design an animation made of clay with sound effects and script. The pair’s collaboration was taped
and videoed in four weeks for the purpose of the study. Selected extracts of the communication
during the task were discussed and analyzed in four stages; design the storyboard, making the
figurines for animation, photography and video animation. The findings of the study revealed that
students sustained their communication actively via continuous discussion in order to complete the
given task. Collaborative learning was able to boost up students’ learning the media creative
subject as well as allowing them to have high confidence in the task given. This study resulted in a
positive impact towards sustaining students’ communication and to include collaborative learning
as an activity for students to sustain their learning environment.
