EFL LEARNERSí PERCEPTIONS OF USING LMS

 

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to present the views, attitudes, and perspectives of undergraduate students using Learning Management System (LMS) along with traditional face-to-face learning. It attempts to understand the factors that influence the adoption of LMS based on users' own experience. The samples were 198 undergraduate students enrolled in Fundamental English course at Bangkok University. The instrument in this study was a questionnaire. The results of the study show that the levels of attitudes toward using the Internet as a learning tool and perceptions of using LMS in general were moderate. There were no statistically significant differences at .05 level found in studentsí attitudes toward using the Internet as a learning tool and their perceptions of using LMS as classified by gender, computer ownership, and monthly allowance. As hypothesised, there was a positive relationship between studentsí attitudes toward using the Internet as a learning tool and their perceptions of using LMS at .01 level. Students with high attitudes toward using the Internet as a learning tool expressed more positive perceptions of using LMS than those with low attitudes.
