Three months after 2020, the world is facing an unprecedented crisis: the outbreak of a new respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus, which has had an impact on different spheres of society, one of them being education. In this context, countries have taken extraordinary measures, being a common trend in education systems to respond to the pandemic with "e-learning" protocols, which mark the rapid transition from face-to-face classes to e-learning systems. Background studies have revealed various factors that influence students' attitudes towards e-learning. An e-learning platform is a web application that integrates a set of tools for online teaching-learning. In this scenario, teachers have had to reinvent their skills and many students react with distrust to the new models that are being implemented, for this reason the objective of the research was to determine the factors associated with the attitudes of university students towards e-learning. The approach was quantitative, cross-correlational design. The sample was made up of 126 health science students from a private university located in Lima-Peru, who participated in the "Research Update Workshop" under the e-learning modality. The instrument used was the scale of attitudes towards e-learning, which consists of 61 items. Data collection was carried out by sending electronic forms of the instrument to the students. The results show that the average age of the students was 30.9 years old, 82.5% (n = 104) were female. 69% (n = 87) had single status, 13.5% (n = 17) married and 9.5% (n = 12) separated. 62.7% (n = 79) work. 63.5% (n = 80) have no previous e-learning experience. 91.3% (n = 115) have only one electronic device to connect, while 8.7% (n = 11) have more than 1 electronic device. Regarding attitudes towards e-learning, in the perception of usefulness dimension, 67.5% (n = 85) were regular and 17.5% (n = 22) were good. In the intention to adopt e-learning dimension, 70.6% (n = 89) had regular attitudes and 15.1% (n = 19) had good attitudes. In ease of use, 64.3% (n = 81) had regular attitudes and 15.1% (n = 19) had good attitudes. In the correlational analysis, only sex was significantly associated with student attitudes towards e-learning (p <0.05). The results reveal that the attitudes of students towards e-learning are mostly regular, requiring the university to develop e-learning strategies that are more attractive to the student and promote active participation, guaranteeing student-teacher-material interaction.
