Abstract

...The focus of this research was to measure the students' level of satisfaction with Asynchronous E-learning Systems. A quantitative method was implemented in this research. A web-based questionnaire was sent out to 1079 students currently studying in three universities within Australia. This research found that the students were satisfied with the Asynchronous E-learning Systems. A number of factors were analysed in relation with student satisfaction. Content reported being the factor that correlated highest with the students' level of satisfaction while Access reported being the lowest factor that correlated highest with the students' level of satisfaction. This research also reported that electronic mails, course online notes and website links are the most used Asynchronous E-learning tools, based on students familiarity with the tools. Also, this research managed to highlight other issues with regards to E-learning Systems, such as the investment considerations in E-learning as well as the need for prior training in the systems for the users. Overall, this research managed to extend the knowledge in the area of university students' satisfaction, specifically with Asynchronous E-learning Systems.
