Factors Affecting Faculty Attitude for Adopting Online Learning at Aljouf University, Saudi Arabia

Journal of Education and Learning Volume 7, Number 1, ISSN 1927-5250


This study aims to take an initial step toward investigating the readiness of faculty members for adopting online learning at Aljouf University, a Saudi newly established university. Participants (n = 156) were asked to complete a Web-based questionnaire that starts with eight demographic questions and has four other parts: attitude toward online learning, computer self-efficacy, attitude toward technology, and computer anxiety. The results demonstrate that faculty members show positive attitudes toward online learning (M = 3.03, SD = 0.45). They also showed a slight high computer self-efficiency (M = 2.92, SD = 0.40), positive attitudes toward technology (M = 3.10, SD = 0.33), and a low level of computer anxiety (M = 1.05, SD = 0.38). Finally, the results reveal that among the demographic variables, only the nationality of the participants and their experience with online learning had a significant effect on their attitude toward online learning. The study concluded with providing a number of recommendations for application and future studies.
