A Comparative Study of Students’ Readiness on E-learning Education Between Indonesia and Myanmar
Due to the popularity of internet, e-learning is becoming more and more popular in not only developed countries but also developing countries. The integration of e-learning at the academic environment of the developing countries was not easy if compared to the developed countries. The inexperienced-universities which are trying to implement e-learning should learn how to overcome challenges and how to make academic strategies from the experienced-universities in e-learning. The purpose of this study was to measure e-learning readiness of two universities from ASEAN( the Association of Southeast Asian Nations) developing countries. In order to adopt e-learning education successfully into Myanmar’s traditional higher education, the findings of this study seek the possible drivers and barriers found in the students from Yangon Technological University (YTU), Myanmar and pointed out what kind of requirements should be upgraded in YTU by comparing Indonesia’s e-learning education. The results could provide YTU to get information that their students’ readiness was over the expected level, except in the learning environment and facilities related to YTU. Additionally, the readiness results from YTU in turn encourage Sam Ratulangi University(UNSRAT),Indonesia so that it could make a check-up on its current e-learning strategies and resources in line with the students’ requirements. The findings indicated that UNSRAT’s facilities were also under the expected level although it was running e-learning courses. Moreover, the findings from this study would be helpful for the universities from not only Indonesia and Myanmar but also other developing countries in order to ensure the effective adoption of e-learning.
