Abstract

This study explores the teachers’ behavioral and affective orientation to e-learning that is in practice at all the levels of education in Bangladesh i.e. primary school, secondary school, higher secondary school, college, and university. By investigating the reasons for such disarray, it proposes solutions to overcome them. It acquired its data through online surveys followed by quantitative analysis through descriptive inferential analogies of the logarithmically represented findings. The result of the study documents that teachers’ preparation, technological know-how and adaptation to the e-learning platforms, their methods of teaching, measurement of outcomes, and mapping of curricula suggest that e-learning in Bangladesh is vitiated due to the diffusion in the teaching staff demographics and diluted apprehension of the e-learning. The paper’s primary findings show that Bangladesh’s progress from Education 1.0 to Education 3.0 is more affective and behavioral than cognitive in the implementation; wherein, the very concept of e-learning is diluted or spun around the idea of education via some usage of technology only, more specifically web conference applications which is indicative of Education 2.0 practices. There is no distinction made that separates online learning from e-learning, e-learning from distance and distance from blended learning, etc. in the current environment.
