A Study of Attitude and Perception of the Learners towards Distance Education in Relation to Their Biographical Factors
Lenka, Samir Kumar; Kant, Ravi
Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, v13 n4 p236-244 Oct 2012
Distance education may play an increasingly important role during this decade in helping address the growing shortage of teachers, educational administrators and other educational professionals experienced in both developing and developed countries. In this study, with the help of one self made tool and a sample of 150 graduate distance learners, it is revealed that gender plays no important role to develop positive attitude and perception. It means, both male and female learners have similar positive attitude towards distance education and biographical factors i.e. locality, stream, SES and caste plays a vital role to develop positive attitude towards distance education.
