Abstract

Abstract Adequate ICT tools that support both traditional and emerging engineering education have been developed, however, their adoption is not up to the mark in developing countries primarily due to lack of sufficient infrastructural facilities and competent human resources besides socio-economical, socio-cultural, and linguistic challenges. This paper deliberates upon the applications of e-learning and its current practice in engineering education. It reports results of a survey conducted to examine adoption of ICT and e-learning tools in engineering institutions of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The results are discussed in light of relevant research to suggest recommendations for improving e-learning implementations in engineering education.
