Trends in Faculty Use and Perceptions of E-Learning

, Manchester Metropolitan University, United Kingdom

Asian Journal of Distance Education Volume 2, Number 2 ISSN 1347-9008


A preliminary survey of the use of, and perceptions of e-learning by two faculty groups at Manchester Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom found that the practices, concerns, and issues regarding e-learning, and reform in teaching and learning more generally, which confronted these faculties, were not out of the ordinary and were similar to those found in other comparable organizations. Notwithstanding interest among faculty members in e-learning technologies, especially WebCT, and how they might be able to use it to support existing teaching and learning practices, this survey revealed a general lack of engagement in e-learning and revealed a concern among the faculty groups about its potential. The reasons that were proffered for this weak engagement and poor enthusiasm for e-learning included lack in institutional support, time and resources to undertake such activities, as well as a lack of information, knowledge and expertise in such new e-learning technologies.
