Resumen

COOPASAMI, Marilynne; KNIGHT, Stephen  y  PETE, Marí. e-Learning readiness amongst nursing students at the Durban University of Technology. Health SA Gesondheid (Online) [online]. 2017, vol.22, pp.300-306. ISSN 2071-9736.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.hsag.2017.04.003.

e-Learning and other innovative open learning multimedia modalities of delivering education are being introduced to enhance learning opportunities and facilitate student access to and success in education. This article reports on a study that assessed students' readiness to make the shift from traditional learning to the technological culture of e-Learning at a university in Durban. A quasi-experimental study design was employed to assess such readiness in first year nursing students before and after an appropriate educational intervention. A modified Chapnick Readiness Score was used to measure their psychological, equipment and technological readiness for the change in learning method. It was found that, while students' psychological readiness for e-Learning was high, they lacked technological and equipment readiness. Although e-Learning could be used in nursing education, technological and equipment readiness require attention before it can be implemented effectively in this institution. Fortunately, these technical aspects are easier to resolve than improving psychological readiness.

Palabras clave : Psychological readiness; Technological readiness; Equipment readiness.
