Abstract

This paper explored gender differences on university students' attitudes toward the web-based learning in Taiwan. Researchers used an on-line questionnaire to survey students' attitudes about the web-based learning. The initial responses in this study consisted of 1166 Taiwanese university students (580 males and 586 females), whose ages ranged from 18 to 23. The statistical results showed significant gender differences in the aspects of access, use, pedagogy, community relationship involved in web-based learning. Some follow-up interviews were also conducted with selected students. It was found that students' questionnaire responses were highly consistent with the qualitative data derived from the follow-up interviews.
