Among the 39 ophthalmologists, 56.4% are male and 43.6% are female. A t-test is conducted to find out is there any no significant difference between the e-learning sites usage score and gender. The p-value (0.772) shows that there is no significant difference between the usage score with gender. 33.3% of ophthalmologists are in the age group less than or equal to 30. 48.7% of ophthalmologists are in the age group between 31 to 40. 17.9% of ophthalmologists are in the age group between 41 to 50. ANOVA is conducted to find out is there any no significant difference between the e-learning sites usage score and age groups.
