Abstract

This study investigates tertiary faculty and student attitudes towards e-learning and their readiness to engage in e-learning experiences. It attempts to identify significant predictors of e-learning readiness. The setting is a public university in the United Arab Emirates, a rapidly developing country in the Gulf Region of the Arabian Peninsula. A survey design was used with two questionnaires, one for faulty and one for students, to collect the data. The questionnaires included items related to several aspects of e-learning relevant to the research questions. Descriptive analyses indicated that students expressed positive attitudes towards e-learning in general. Faculty, on the other hand, expressed mixed attitudes towards e-learning, but were willing to teach in an e-learning environment so long as support was provided. Inferential analysis is underway to identify significant predictors of e-learning readiness amongst faculty and students.
