Abstract

In this paper, we describe a survey conducted on a local polytechnic in Singapore to investigate factors affecting lecturers' readiness in the use of educational technologies and tools, learning models or standards, instructional approaches for e-learning. Seventy-two lecturers from seven schools across the polytechnic took part in the survey held over three weeks. Findings show a positive correlation between lecturers' confidence and familiarity with supporting tools in Blackboard and their readiness to adopt e-learning for their courses. The paper concludes with a discussion on recommendations of support for lecturers in the e-learning environments.
