Teacher Insights

A study done in Malaysia has revealed that Computer Self Efficacy(CSE)and Enjoyment are primary factors behind continued use of Cloud based E-learning among students.
The study was conducted among 170 IT students in private universities and it was found that Perceived Ease of Use (PEU) and User Perception (UP) had little impact on the Continuance Intention (CI).Cloud computing enables ease of storage, retrieval and sharing. It has been adopted to support co-operative learning and remote e-learning. Computer self-efficacy refers to an individual's confidence or belief in using new technology and applications. Enjoyment refers to individual happiness experienced while using new technologies or performing a new task.
The research outcome shows that for students to be willing to use Cloud e-learning platform, they need to be confident about themselves and also enjoy the process of learning. Therefore, having fun and entertainment elements are vital for adoption of Cloud-based e-learning. Equipping the students with basic knowledge of operations and systems can boost their confidence in e-learning.
