System and User Characteristics in the Adoption and Use of e-Learning Management Systems: A Cross-Age Study

 

This study analyses the most relevant factors which affect users' intention to use e-learning management systems, with special focus in the difference of age. The fundamental hypothesis is that there can be established a influence of behavioural intention, attitude toward behaviour, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, subjective norms and social influence in the intention to use of e-learning management systems, with user and system factors as antecedents. In order to design the theoretical model, the most relevant technology acceptance models have been reviewed from literature, with special focus in learning management systems (LMS) adoption. The result of this review is a unified model which has been validated with data collected from 94 people through a web questionnaire. The results from this data have been analysed using the partial least squares (PLS) method. The analysis has demonstrated the predictive relevance and the validation of the model for users between 26 to 35 years old and 36 to 45 years old.
