Abstract

This study aimed at examining the attitudes of undergraduate students towards online learning in District Peshawar. The study mainly focused on exploring the relationship between undergraduate students’ attitudes towards Technology Acceptance Model, with a special reference to online learning. A self–structured closed questionnaire with 5-point Likert scale was designed for data collection from a sample of 83 undergraduate level students. Ordinal Regression Analysis was used to analyse the data. Findings of the study show no significant relationship between students’ interest in computer, usefulness of computer to students and easiness in using online learning at undergraduate level. Slow and meagre internet facilities, with least understanding of students about online learning, often develop negative approach among students regarding online learning. Policy makers should include online learning topics in the curriculum and the government needs to organise workshops and seminars for teachers to equip them with knowledge and application of computer in academic process.
