The immense use of web based resources is an undeniable truth in today's learning scenario. Resource-based learning has gained momentum in leaps and bounds. Resource-based learning aids in the academic and holistic development of students by taking into account their capabilities, their styles of learning and their needs. RBL empowers the student to analyze and organize digital material. It also enables the learner to develop critical thinking skills and gives them the confidence to sift from the plethora of information available, the skill to ferret out what they need and what is needed for them. This skill will go a long way in empowering them to utilize the varied resources that is available on hand in various forms be it print or electronic. Such training in thinking will help them to approach any topic in a number of learning styles. The authors of this research paper, have attempted to understand the impact of resource based learning on teachers, keeping in view Gagne's (1985) theory of levels of learning. Teachers from traditional background of teaching methods involving classroom interface, were approached and their views on the new methods popularized by RBL were obtained by means of a self-administered online questionnaire. The objective of the study was to analyze the attitudinal responses of the teachers towards RBL and whether they viewed it as a beneficial exercise for students as against traditional methods of learning. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
