Abstract

PCF4 // In spite of various advantages eLearning has over the conventional approach, the diffusion of eLearning is rather slow. One of the reasons for this, is the lack of information and negative perception among students. // Business Education in India is booming since last couple of decades. In spite of large number of B Schools are offering graduate and Post Graduate programs, there sill exists demand – Supply Gap. The second area of concern is the quality of output. // Application of Information and Communication technology (ICT) or eLearning is the only solution to address the twin concerns - Quantity and Quality. // An empirical research study was carried out with following objectives in mind: // To ascertain the perceptions of MBA students towards eLearning. // To ascertain their perceptions towards prevailing learning environment. // To ascertain the Computer and Internet Skills level amongst MBA students. // To ascertain the relationships between above three. // The data collected was analyzed using ANOVA and f Tests. The findings are interesting and informative. // The research study is useful while promoting eLearning/Distance Education Technologies in developing countries. Though the study is focused on Business Education, the findings can be generalized for Higher Education in neighboring Developing Countries. // Paper ID 168
