E-Learning is a novel concept in higher educations institutions of developing countries and especially in Pakistan. No one can predict the future but can surely prepare for it. Researchers on e-Learning in higher education institutions are capitalizing on the user-perceptions as possible predictor of the user-attitudes towards the development, use, problems and prospects of e-Learning. This application is founded on the psychological fact that a human’s attitude depends on his/her ‘belief’ or ‘perceptions. That is, if e-Learning users perceive educational technologies favorably, they are more likely to speedily adopt digital tools than those who misperceive or under-perceive them. This research reveals that perceptions about educational technologies are very significantly related with and predict the criterion variable of ‘Problems of e-Learning’ but surprisingly, the ‘prospects of e-Learning’ are very nominally associated with and predicted by the predictor.

 

Key words: Perceptions, educational technologies, e-Learning development, use, problems, prospects.
