Abstract

Research studies have shown online education has grown significantly all over the world as a result of growth of educational technology and its real and perceived benefits (Gunawardena, 1998; Harasim, 1990; McComb, 1993). Despite such rapid growth of online education, there is a scarcity of related research in developing country literature. This study aims to study the factors associated with the adoption of online education by students in developing countries. These factors include 1) student demographics 2) availability of technology and students' online experience 3) attitude towards and understanding of online education 4) future employment possibilities 5) satisfaction with the courses taken.
