This study explored the differences in perceptions and attitudes between full-time pre-service student teachers and part-time in-service practicing teachers towards online learning. Empirical statistics were extracted and patterns of responses examined between these two groups of learners. Follow up focus group interviews were conducted to prompt deeper into the perceptions and attitudes of these two groups of learners. The results help inform module developers of the factors affecting the construction of meaningful web learning environments and provide a better understanding of the differences between full-time and part-time learners towards online learning in terms of the learners¡¦ characteristics, attitudes and perceptions.
