Students' Attitudes to Online Reading in the Era of Technology at the University of Transport and Communications
Thanks to the remarkable development of technology 4.0, online reading is becoming more popular for students. Higher education institutions encourage their students to participate in online learning courses as well as widening their knowledge by reading online after campus–based learning, especially in the Covid19 epidemic. The study was conducted to investigate the students’ attitudes to online reading as well as the effects of online reading for UTC2 students and ways to access information accurately by collecting 200 students from five different majors, including Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering, Economics, Mechanical Engineering, and Information Technology. The qualitative approach with a well–structured questionnaire was used to collect the primary data from respondents. The findings pointed out that the students showed their positive attitudes toward online reading because online reading is an effective way to improve their knowledge and the effectiveness of online reading significantly varies with their reading purposes, technology usage, and skills.
