Perceived Usefulness and Ease of Use of the Learning Management System as a Learning Tool
Juhary, Jowati
International Education Studies, v7 n8 p23-34 2014
A Learning Management System (LMS) can be a singularly critical platform to report on students' learning progress and to monitor students' learning engagement. At the only defence university in Malaysia, the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) adopts the LMS as a supplementary learning and teaching tool. Nonetheless, the aspiration of Malaysia to ensure that higher learning institutions actively participate in the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) has further emphasised the need for the NDUM to provide an effective LMS to the students. This paper aims at examining the perceptions of students at the Defence University on the use of the LMS. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used as the basis for generating hypotheses and conceptual framework for the paper. Five classes of students were involved in the data collection resulting in 100 returned questionnaires. Preliminary findings highlight students' positive attitudes towards the use of the LMS; however, there are technical issues that must be addressed to ensure that the LMS can function effectively.
