TEACHERS' EXPECTATIONS OF THE IMPACT OF E-LEARNING ON KUWAIT’S PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM
Abstract:E-learning has emerged as a necessity to meet the challenges posed by the development of information technology and its potential for greater access to knowledge. E-learning technology is becoming more visible in schools in many parts of the world. Kuwait, like many other countries, has started to study the adoption of an E-learning system in K-12. E-learning in schools must meet certain standards that make students competent in a number of areas. The purpose of this study is to investigate teachers' opinions of the impact of E-learning on the public education system in Kuwait. Based on responses by 519 teachers, to a questionnaire survey consisting of 36 items, the study identifies the following six educational improvement areas: 1) basic operations and computer concepts; 2) ethical and human issues; 3) productivity tools; 4) research tools; 5) problem-solving and decision-making tools; and 6) communication tools.
