Title: Reducing Computer Anxiety in Self-Paced Technology Training
Authors: Gupta, Saurabh
Keywords: Computer Anxiety
Socio-Cognitive Theory
Technology Training
Issue Date: 04 Jan 2017
Abstract: Industry reports continue to highlight the importance and growth of e-learning. However, researcher, trainers and trainees all agree that e-learning is different in terms of the level of personalization and anxiety that it brings, and its impact on outcomes. This paper presents a research model to reframe the dominant theory in technology training, i.e. Socio-Cognitive theory and its impact on learning, including the impact of perceived anxiety and team-based learning. Results from an empirical study are presented. Results show that teams based e-learning can reduce perceived anxiety and thus, improve training outcomes. Theoretical and practical implications are also presented.
