Abstract:

E-learning has acquired centre stage in the changing education landscape in the country. In order to realize the full potential of e-learning, the different stakeholders should be e-ready to partake in the e-learning process. Teachers, students and administrators are three critical stakeholders of an education system. The present study was undertaken to find out the e-learning readiness of teachers of two State Agriculture Universities (SAUs) in North India. The two SAUs were selected randomly and the respondents were selected through Stratified random sampling following PPS (Probability Proportionate to Size). The total sample size included 140 teachers, 70 from each of the two selected University. A structured, pre-tested questionnaire was used to collect the data which was analysed using SPSS. E-learning readiness was measured on eight components: Technological Skills Readiness, Online learning style readiness, Infrastructure readiness, Attitude readiness, Human resources readiness, Environmental readiness, Cultural readiness and Financial readiness. Each dimension was measured on a five point continuum. The study findings indicated that average Mean score for each of the two SAUs indicated that the two Universities were “ready but needs improvement”. The policy makers, administrators and educationists of higher agriculture education system of the country can draw lessons from the study findings and prepare appropriate plans and strategies and develop a model system to make an SAU e-ready.
