Abstract

This study investigated accessibility and utilization of e-learning technologies by Business Education Students in post COVID 19 pandemic era. Five research questions were raised for the study. One hypothesis was formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study employed a descriptive survey research design. The population of the study was made up of 382 Business Education students across different levels. A sample size of 115 business education students was used for the study. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire titled Accessibility and Utilization of E-learning Technology for Business Education Students during Post COVID-19 Era (AUETBESPCE). It was validated by experts and a reliability coefficient of 0.78 was obtained. The data collected were analysed using mean, standard deviation (SD), and two sample independent t-test. The findings revealed among others that business education students’ accessibility to e-learning technologies was high while the utilization of e-learning was low. It was recommended among others that the stakeholders of tertiary institutions should provide e- learning facilities to make the students utilize e-learning.
