Students may well be ‘digital natives’; however, there is little evidence that they are natural ‘digital learners’. Two questions were examined in this study. Firstly, in Hong Kong, what are undergraduate students’ perceptions towards the use of technology for teaching and learning? Secondly, in what way did our students’ previous experience in using technology, in particular various eLearning strategies, affect their perceptions of the value of eLearning? We surveyed 1438 students at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. The students were generally positive (though not overly enthusiastic) about various forms of eLearning. Students who were more experienced in using technologies in their everyday lives were in general more positive about eLearning strategies. Most interestingly, the more experience the students had with eLearning strategies, the more positive they were towards eLearning as well. This is evidence that eLearning has provided learning benefits to our students.
