Abstract

The purpose of the study was to investigate prospective computer teachers' perceptions on e-learning. Besides, brief history of e-learning in Turkey was introduced. An e-learning survey which is of 54 questions was administered to 85 junior and senior students enrolled at Computer Education and Instructional Technologies department of Faculty of Education, Ege University. The findings revealed that participant students were not knowledgable enough about e-learning as it was predicted though they were eager to learn more about it. They also had the notion that the e-learning applications will gain attention and interest in the near future more than they have today.
