EXAMINING FACTORS OF USING INFORMATION AND
COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR E-LEARNING ORGANIZATION


SUMMARY:

In the time when information and communication technologies (ICT) are considered to be the significant tool in education, there arises a question if there are proper conditions of their implementation for e-learning organization at higher educational institutions in Ukraine. The paper aims to examine teachers’ ICT skills and factors which slow down the process of using ICT for teaching students. The survey involved 106 teachers working at Ukrainian educational institutions of various types. The following questionnaires were used in the survey: “Students’ Impressions Scale”, “Teachers’ Attitude Towards Elearning Checklist”, “Factors Affecting ICT Use”, “Educational Institutions Provision Quality”. The questionnaires consisted of closed- and open-ended questions, as well as scale questions. Accrding to the research outcomes, the following factors positively influence the use of ICT for e-learning organization: self-fulfillment, students’ interest and motivation, financial gain, administration’s and colleagues’ respect, personal interest, improvement of academic performance. The most significant factors negatively affecting the process of ICT application are as follows: low level of equippment support, improper facilities, insufficient financial support, lack of software, lack of time, teachers’ incompetence. Despite the low level of Ukrainian educational institutions’ innovative activity assurance, teachers do their best to implement ICT into the educational process and make it more interesting for students. The insufficient level of soft- and hardware supply, the lack of powerful computers, poor financial support, personal factors, technical incompetence of teachers, and lots of other challenges should be urgently solved in order to provide Ukrainian students with high-quality education.
