Abstract

This study examines how self-directed learning readiness (SDLR) affects students’ preferences for distance learning and adapting to the changing learning conditions during the pandemic. Moreover, the changes in students’ attitudes toward distance learning after a forced distance learning period are discovered. We found evidence that SDLR may raise students’ desire for distance learning and help students transition from contact to distance learning.
