Building Collegiate E-Loyalty: The Role of Perceived Value in the Quality-Loyalty Linkage in Online Higher Education
Contemporary Issues in Education Research Volume 9, Number 3, ISSN 1940-5847
E-service quality of online higher education reflects the student's perception of quality of online exchanges across four dimensions: fulfillment, efficiency, system availability and privacy. This study links e-service quality to intentions to remain loyal as mediated by perceived value in an online higher education environment. AMOS is used to examine the structural model based on responses to a student self-report online survey (n=127). Results indicate a strong causal linkage between e-S-QUAL and Loyalty Intentions as mediated by Perceived Value. Further, the direct linkage between e-S-QUAL and Loyalty Intentions was found to be insignificant, substantiating the proposed full mediation model.
