ItemDevelopment of e-readiness scale in blended learning in filmmaking program for a private university in Bangladesh–initial stageAlthough the Government of Bangladesh is pressuring all educational institutions to go online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the higher educational institutes are finding it difficult to adjust to the new situation. While they have begun discussing the importance of online and blended learning, they are still waiting to return to face-to-face class once the pandemic is over. This is because they are still unprepared to embrace e-learning. This study aims to develop a unified scale to assess the higher education institute's e-readiness in Bangladesh to identify their strengths and weaknesses and formulate a plan for creating an e-learning environment. The findings of this study are based on a quantitative survey, and the study was completed using a sample size of 410 contributors 345 (84.1%) students, 34 (8.3%) teachers, and 31 (7.6%) administrators from the University of Liberal Arts, Bangladesh, a private university in Dhaka. Three separate assessment instruments were developed for the key stakeholdes: students, teachers, and administrators. A systematic approach was used to create the institutional e-readiness scale with acceptable validity and reliability. The Scale-level Content Validity Index of the Averaging calculation method (S-CVI/Ave) value was 0.996, and the instruments' reliability coefficient Cronbach's Alpha was 0.949 (students), 0.935 (teachers), and 0.837 (administrators). The alpha values suggest the compiled instruments are good to excellent. This study indicates that the institutional e-readiness scale could assess the e-readiness of other universities in Bangladesh.
ItemThe differences of students traits in computer science program with the perception of using laptops for studying in Chengdu, Sichuan, ChinaWith a sample size of 475 respondents, this study examined how students' disparities in computer science qualities affect their perceptions of using laptops for learning in a computer science program in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. A questionnaire was used as the research instrument. Conduct statistical analysis of variance on the data (Multivariate Analysis of Variance: MANOVA). Perceived ease of use (X̅) = 4.141, perceived usefulness (X̅) = 4.181, trust (X̅) = 4.147, and behavioral intention (X̅) = 4.166 were all high average scores. Meanwhile, at the 0.05 level of significance, gender, age, subjects in computer science courses, and types of laptop manufacturers have no statistically significant difference on perceived ease of use, perceived utility, trust, or behavioral intention. Thus, students use laptops in their study environments, and it was discovered that students' perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, trust, and behavioral intention to use laptops for studying in computer science courses are generally positive, as the average score is higher, with no significant difference between student characteristics in gender, age, subjects in computer science courses, and types of laptop manufacturers.
