  • Mapping Learning Management System Features to Persuasive Design Strategies to Inform the Design of Persuasive Learning Management System   Order a copy of this article
    by Wan Nooraishya Wan Ahmad, Ahmad Rizal Ahmad Rodzuan, Carolyn Salimun 
    Abstract: The term persuasive indicates the effect of a relevant subject or object on others through persuasion technique. It derives from the domain of persuasive technology that focuses on using technology to shape or change human behaviour/attitude. In recent years, persuasion has become an essential topic in designing human-computer interaction. This paper seeks to shed light on the emergence and consolidation of persuasion in the design of online learning environments and their effect on the users. We synthesise the literature on online learning by reviewing the literature on persuasive design in the online learning context. Based on the review, we identified several persuasive strategies that are used effectively in online learning. These persuasive design strategies include reduction, tunnelling, tailoring, self-monitoring, liking, personalisation, social role, reward, praise, suggestions, trustworthiness, competition, and social comparison. A mapping of possible persuasive design for a learning management system is suggested.

  • Using the Personal Computer utilization model to predict students technology user behaviour in universities in Botswana   Order a copy of this article
    by Norman Rudhumbu, Kanos Matyokurehwa, Cross Gombiro 
    Abstract: Technological advances have reduced learning and teaching limits based on time and distance making education more accessible to students. Accordingly, this study therefore sought to establish whether the Personal Computer utilization model (PCUM) could be used to predict and explain factors that influence the technology user behaviour of university students in Botswana. A quantitative approach that employed a self-constructed structured questionnaire was used to collect data from a sample of 940 students from three public universities. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was used for data validation of scale items. Results of the study showed that five out of the six dimensions of the PCUM significantly influenced the technology user behaviour of university students that showing that overall, the PCUM could be used to predict and explain the technology user behaviour of university students. These results have implications on both practice and policy with regards to the integration of technology in universities.
    Keywords: Job-fit; affect towards technology use; Personal Computer utilization model; technology user behaviour; social factors; facilitating conditions.

  • The role of technology readiness in students' perception and behaviour towards e-learning technologies   Order a copy of this article
    by Tejas R. Shah, Tejal T. Shah 
    Abstract: The objective of this research is to explore and analyze the role of technology readiness (TR) in students' perception and behaviour of e-learning technologies. This research also aims to measure e-learning service quality. A structural equation modelling (SEM) technique was used for data analysis. First, the literature review related to TR, e-learning service quality, e-learning behaviour was conducted. Second, Delphi method was used to refine questionnaire. Survey method was followed for data collection. The final sample included of students who had frequent experience of using e-learning technologies. Results indicate the role of role of TR and e-learning service quality in students e-learning behaviour. TR should be given increased attention by universities and educational institutions to improve students perception and behaviour of e-learning technologies. Universities and educational institutions need to assess e-learning service quality to improve students satisfaction and behaviour intention towards e-learning technologies.
