Abstract

E-Learning has become an increasingly popular learning approach in higher Education institutions due to the rapid growth of Internet Technology in Saudi Arabia. In recent years, it has been integrated in many university programs and it is one of the new learning trends. Our King Khalid University is such a one rapidly growing institutions of using E-Learning System in higher education in Saudi Arabia. E-Learning is not intended to replace the traditional classroom setting, but to provide new opportunities and new virtual environment for interaction and communication between the students and teacher. The benefit of E-Learning System will not be maximized unless learners use the system even though e-learning is the main pillar of Learning. This study focuses on the individual learners’ perception and acceptance of the E-Learning System in KKU as an effective learning tool based on Technology Acceptance Model by evaluating the relationships among perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, attitude towards using and behavioral intention to use the technology. TAM proposes that perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness predict application usage. The study investigated TAM with the E-Learning and used TAM as a basis for hypothesizing the effects of above specified variables on the use of E-Learning System as the learning application.
