Article review: Undergraduates Using ELearning in a Tertiary Institution in China

A fascinating read into a practical application and evaluation of eLearning in China. Through an online survey, the authors seek to discover how students at Xi’an Jiao Tong University react to eLearning as a delivery method, whether computer literacy is a prerequisite for acceptance and successful use of eLearning tools, and to assess the usefulness of content management systems as a teaching aid. Describing in detail the methodology, sample and results, the article comes to several conclusions, including that students did not show any level of relative improvement in knowledge acquisition in an eLearning versus face-to-face context.
