Abstract

Today’s conventional teaching and learning methods have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Online forms are replacing traditional education approaches. Along with the era of advanced technology, many universities are taking this opportunity to develop e-learning platforms to be used by both students and educators. This paper analyses the relationships between student behaviour, technological systems, interactive applications, institutional factors, and instructor characteristics to accept electronic learning among distance learners. A total of 479 valid questionnaires were analyzed. The result indicates that student behaviour, interactive applications, and instructor characteristics are the determinants of electronic learning.

Keywords: Acceptance, online learning, Behavior, Distance learners
