The emergence of the fourth industrial revolution sparked a need for changes in higher education institutions in term of teaching and learning. E-learning can attract learners into the learning environment with its myriad of benefits. Despite its abundance of benefits, learners seem to not fully utilize the e-learning portal and later tend to discontinue using it. This article aims to explore the relationship between grit, self-efficacy, and self-perceived performance among postgraduates using an e-learning portal. A total of 441 data inputs were collected from postgraduate learners via an online survey and analyzed using structural equation modeling (SEM). The findings indicate that grit displayed a positive significant impact on self-efficacy and students' self-perceived performance and that self-efficacy positively affects self-perceived performance. Theoretical and practical contributions are presented and discussed. The limitations of the research are explained, and suggestions for future research are also elaborated.
