Factors affecting the Use of eLearning Tools in a Student Centered Learning Environment

Ishara Silva

Abstract: Student centered learning is the modern trend in most of the education institutes. Variety of methods could be useful for learning in such environment. eLearning is one of the methods that could use to acquire knowledge in self-learning environment. Using quantitative approach, a case study was conducted to assess and compare the student's knowledge, attitudes and practice regarding eLearning in a student centered learning environment. This study finds that eLearning becomes more comprehensive and suitable for self-learners with less guidance. However, there are still many problems arise because of the knowledge capabilities, the need for appropriate tools and proper guidance when dealing with eLearning resources that hinder the implementation of self-study environment reforming the traditional class room methods. The problems encountered in the field include: unawareness of technology, unfamiliarity, willingness and the attitudes over changing from traditional to modern eLearning methods and study culture (traditional methods). Some recommendations included such as the proper usage of eLearning tools, guidance over mind set changing, providing relevant and accurate basic knowledge, providing adequate education on the resource usage and introducing the latest eLearning tools to ensure quality study environment.
