Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, v13 n1 p27-33 Jan 2012
Today many claim that e-learning can result in considerable time and cost-savings, such as traveling, work time and etc. This study was conducted to investigate these questions: should e-learning be used to reduce travel related stress? should e-learning be offered fully online to reach students living in remote areas? should e-learning be adopted to allow working students to study from home? Pressure to use e-learning was developed as a factor to answer above questions. Data was collected through a survey of 400 post graduate students at Tehran University. The results showed that many Iranian post gratitude students agreed on above statements. In addition, linear regression analyses revealed a statistically-significant model for pressure to use e-learning as the best predictor of level of student's intention to adopt e-learning (F 37.737, df=1, R square = 0.187).
