Abstract

"Background/Objectives: The growth for the need for technology has not hindered with time. The traditional approach of learning is time consuming, the use of technology has helped students in procuring information at a quicker pace. Methods/Statistical analysis: The traditional approaches towards learning have not been able to keep the pace. E-learning has increased the accessibility by providing information to anyone anytime anywhere and with that it has been cost effective too. Methods/Statistical analysis: Various institutions have implemented similar e-learning platforms so it gives more reason to assess the acceptance of such measures by students. The objective of the study is to explore the attitude of students towards e-learning by using TAM framework and also to assess the influence of computer self-efficacy. Findings: The current study was able to establish that computer self-efficacy acts as a mediator between perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and attitude towards adoption of technology by students. Improvements/Applications: The implications of the study will help the management to understand if the students have accepted e-learning as a platform to learn and whether they wish to use this in future."
