Abstract

Continuing formal education is essential for distance learners to improve their learning skills and knowledge to meet the challenge career in modern competitive world. This study examines the success factors that influence learners' use of the Learning Management System (LMS) and tests the applicability of the propose model, in the context of distance learning practices in higher education. A survey was conducted to higher education learners who involved in distance learning instruction. This study used a set of questionnaire which was adapted from the literatures to examine three groups of dimensions, system design (system quality, service quality, information quality, usefulness and ease of use), system usage (system use, behavioural intention to use and user satisfaction) and System Outcome (net benefit). Using data from a survey to distance learning students (N=425), a path analysis revealed that system design has a significant influence on user satisfaction and intention to use of the LMS which directly affect the use of the system. Consequently user satisfaction and system used show strong impact to the net benefit.
