Abstract


The study investigated the opinions of geography lecturers and students on the collaborative avenues created by e-learning in the study of geography in Nigerian universities. Two research questions and one null hypothesis guided the study. The population of the study was 1,241 Stratified Random Sampling Techniques was used to draw a sample of 366. A structured questionnaire with 14 items was the instrument used for data collection that was duly validated, and its reliability ascertained using Cronbach Alpha, which yielded an index of 0.83. 350 copies were properly filled that was used for the study. The data collected were analyzed using means and standard deviations to answer the research questions, and‘t’ test was applied to test the hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study showed that the respondents believe that the collaborative avenues created by e-learning would enhance the study of geography in Nigerian universities, making it possible for groups to work together on given projects, thereby removing boredom and isolation in the study of geography phenomena globally. It then implies that the study of geography could be enhanced through the collaborative avenues e-learning has created. Based on the findings of the study, recommendations were made.
