Electronic learning is the trendy approach for higher education institutes around the globe but there are not many findings about student teachers’ readiness in this direction. A questionnaire was developed by adapting Hiltz’s framework to find out student teachers’ perceptions on different areas which contribute to the success of electronic learning. There were a total of 70 student teachers participated in the survey. 44 of them took at least one information technology module but the rest did not take any IT modules. These two groups of students gave high ratings on most items asked. However, their perceptions on group dynamics and mode of teaching were significantly different. The findings are not only useful to our institute but also inform others who are in the area of teacher education.
