The study was conducted to investigate attitudes toward using computers as a learning tool among undergraduate students in a private university. In this regards, some variables which might be potential antecedents of attitudes toward computer including gender, experience of using computers and perceived abilities in using programs were examined. Data was collected from 192 undergraduate students enrolled in two fundamental English courses (EN012 & EN 013). The instrument in this study was a questionnaire. The findings revealed that students had positive attitudes towards using computers as a learning tool. The factors of gender and experience of using computers were not found to affect students' attitudes while the factor of perceived abilities in using programs had an effect on their attitudes.
