Abstract

This paper analyses the relationship between the experience of using different ICT and attitudes towards e-learning. We have conducted two surveys with teachers and students from the academic institutions associated with the subject of electricity in Turkey. Both surveys have been built on our conceptual models of readiness for e-learning. 280 and 483 valid responses from teachers and students have been collected, respectively. Overall, the findings indicate that the more experiences the teachers and students have of using different ICT the more positive their attitudes towards e-learning and that e-learning should be integrated into campus-based education and training.
