Abstract/Description

During the last decade e-learning
has become a widely accepted and commonly
used educational tool. The main aim of our
paper was to compare students’ attitudes
towards e-learning in Croatia and Scotland, and
also to identify two relatively homogeneous
groups of students according to their
perceptions. T-tests and cluster analysis, in a
data mining context, were used in this study and
results confirm that Scottish students generally
perceive their e-learning opportunities more
positively than their Croatian counterparts. Such
inter-university research studies are important
because they enable a more realistic view of
students’ e-learning adoption to be reached and
should therefore be implemented regularly
