One of the variables analyzed from a research on computer attitudes for
distance education students was computer anxiety. Computer anxiety is a
mix of dislike and phobia towards the use of computers for e-learning
purposes. Of the 500 sampled cases, the response rate was 50.6% or 253
respondents. A questionnaire was the instrument used to collect data for
parametric and non-parametric analyses.
It was evidenced from the
findings that there were still some students who still experience
computer anxiety. This outcome is a paradox since ICT is ubiquitous and
the mode of teaching and learning for distance education is through the
use of ICT.
