As a result of the study, it was found that Turkish teacher candidates' attitudes towards e-learning and digital literacy levels were moderate, while their e-learning readiness were high. No significant relationship was found between Turkish teacher candidates' attitude towards e-learning and their academic achievement, and no significant relationship was found between attitude towards e-learning and digital literacy. There was a significant negative relationship between attitude towards e-learning and e-learning readiness. It was revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between digital literacy and academic achievement and between readiness and attitude towards e-learning. There was also a positive relationship between readiness for e-learning and digital literacy. Academic achievement of Turkish teacher candidates was significantly predicted by readiness for e-learning; however, academic achievement was not significantly predicted by attitude towards e-learning and e-learning readiness
