Electronic learning is a new trend in higher education institutes around the globe but there is a paucity of solid research concerning student teachers’ readiness for this direction. A questionnaire was developed by adapting Hiltz’s framework to determine student teachers’ perceptions on areas that contribute to the success of electronic learning. A total of 70 student teachers participated in the survey. 44 of them took at least one information technology module and the remainder took no information technology modules. The two groups of students gave high ratings on most items asked. However, their perceptions on group dynamics and mode of teaching were significantly different. The research findings and the implications for use in teaching education are discussed. Copyright © 2007 Information Resources Management Association.
