Researchers have been examining educational resources and content to enhance and support learning experience. As technology continues to transform the way we learn and access information, digital learning materials have become increasingly popular in modern education. However, to ensure the quality of digital learning materials, there is a need to explore them in different aspects. This study was conducted to determine the effects of various types of digital learning materials on students’ academic achievement using subject (Biological Sciences, General Science, Physical Sciences), grade level (kindergarten, primary, intermediate, secondary), and length of exposure (1-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 10-12 weeks) as moderator variables. A total of 14 studies was considered involving 789 students from kindergarten to junior high school. Results show that the overall effect size was found to be very large (g = 1.775) with a 95% CI. Likewise, subgroup analyses reveal very large effect size for subject (g = 1.516, p<0.025) and length of exposure (g = 1.471, p<0.025) while huge effect size for grade level (g = 2.241, p<0.025). It was also found that using digital learning materials and learning achievement in science have a significant positive correlation ( τb = 0.51, p<.05). This meta-analysis underscores the highly pursued benefit of using digital learning materials which is enhancing students’ learning achievement. The implications of the study include that for digital learning materials to be more effective, their design and implementation must consider interaction among learners, integrate challenges but not as prerequisites, include various types, and account for attractiveness and multisensory learning.
