Özet

Students are one of the key elements during the implementation of e-learning systems within universities. To be able to build solid and effective elearning systems, it is important to know the level of students' readiness. In this paper, e-learning readiness of the Department of Information Management (DIM) students at Hacettepe University will be investigated. A 39-item e-learning readiness questionnaire (along with some descriptive questions, such as gender and grade-level) that was tested in previous studies was used to obtain the data. The results show that, although some improvements are needed, DIM students are at the expected level of e-learning readiness, in general.
