International Journal of Learning Technology (IJLT), Vol. 7, No. 2, 2012


Abstract: The aim of this research was to study the effect of flexibility on e-learning use within the framework of the technology acceptance model (TAM). Concern with flexibility arises from university programmes increasingly blending distance education and on-site learning, made possible by internet-age computer technologies. The use of these technologies is bound to their enabling to break away from time and space constraints. In this context, our results confirm that student choices to use these technologies for their learning are strongly influenced directly and indirectly by the perceived lack of flexibility of on-site course design. The results also indicate that the absence of flexibility of on-site courses has not only more impact on the use of these technologies but also on all other variables in the TAM.
