Factors Predicting Nonprofit Employees' Likelihood of Attending Online Training

ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Louisville
This research investigated the factors predicting nonprofit employees' likelihood of attending online training sessions using a simulated training announcement and the Technology Acceptance Model. The research sampled nonprofit employees from a human services organization (n = 101). Analyses were used to determine the relationship between demographics, job characteristics, perceived usefulness of online training, perceived ease of use of online training, attitude toward using and intentions to use online training. The data were analyzed with regression, independent-sample t-tests, and descriptive statistics. The results indicate that demographic characteristics, including age, do not reliably predict the likelihood of attending online training sessions. Participants' perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, attitude and intentions to use online training predicted their likelihood of online training attendance. Additional research should investigate online training session acceptance using a variety of training topics, a stronger focus on part-time employees and larger sample sizes.
