Three studies were conducted within one Singapore university, including a total of n=565 students.
Study 1 compared student learning outcomes in e-learning classes and traditional, face-to-face classes.
In Study 2, a brief instrument measuring motivation to use e-learning was developed and validated.
In Study 3, predictors of adult students’ motivation to use e-learning were examined.
Results were mixed with respect to whether e-learning or traditional learning was superior in terms of achieved learning outcomes. Preferences for constructivist versus traditional learning approaches and perceived quality of technical support
emerged as significant predictors of motivation to use e-learning approaches.
