Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to determine self-efficacy and obstacles in elearning experienced by students. Further, this study explored the nature of relationships among self-efficacy and obstacles in e-learning. A total of 202 student year 2 and year 3 in FPTP were chosen as respondent of this study. Self-efficacy are referring to how confident an individual feels about handle particular tasks, challenges and context that given by the lecturer. Obstacles are defined as the resistance faced by students that will bring negative effects to them in using e-how. This study used questionnaires and quantitative methods for data collection. The findings showed that the students have e-learning self-efficacy (mean= 3.8201). Four categories of obstacles (factors) emerged, that include personality, organization, situational and technological obstacles. Organizational obstacles were the most prevalent (mean= 3.3020), personality obstacles (mean= 3.2855), and situation obstacles (mean= 3.281). Technology obstacles (mean= 2.7723) were the least common. The relationships among self-efficacy in e-learning and obstacles in elearning is very weak. Suggestions for future research is the study of the future should consider the proposed method of solution of the respondents other than the test about the obstacles faced by the respondents. In this study, the major limitation was the method used for data collection, which is using a questionnaire. The questionnaire can be conducted in an easy way, cost effective and within a short period of time. This study has been carried out to achieve the objectives as required by the researchers to identify the self-efficacy in using e-learning and obstacles in elearning. For the study to identify the relationship, one hypothesis were tested and it was accepted.
