Abstract

The use of information communication technology to build human resources is a vital prerequisite for the development of knowledge-based economy. Learning Management Systems (LMS) do not only provide academic institutions with effective and efficient means to build human resources but also enable them to efficiently and effectively codify and share their academic knowledge. The success of learning management systems in academic institution may be initiated by instructors' acceptance; however, it survives in the long run by learners' continuous acceptance and utilization. Consequently, the objective of this paper is to provide a comprehensive look at the critical factors that influence learners' acceptance of LMS and consequently their actual use. These critical factors are related to the major entities of LMS: the learner, the instructor, the course, the classmates, the organization, and the technology.
