The Impact of Consumerization Attitude and Task Technology Fit on Learning Management Systems in Belize
AbstractLearning management systems (LMSs) have evolved to greater levels in higher education. Research conducted on LMSs has shown more of a technological focus. There is great potential associated with LMSs and for this to be utilized to its full extent research that addresses the role of LMSs in learning success is necessary. Task technology fit (TTF), which considers the needed technological characteristics of the task as a major factor determining usage, has been known to show how it has impacted the use of information systems and what impacts are caused by the performance generated. The study described in this paper used the technology-to-performance chain as a framework to address the question of how tasks–technology fit will have a positive influence on the perceived impact of teaching. The results will determine the importance of task-technology fit and provide a revealing outcome as to the support it provides on learning both directly and indirectly. The Learning management systems had positive and negative outcomes. Positive due to task technology fit having a strong influence on understanding the impact of LMS but a negative impact when processing student grades. Contrary to expectations, the study we conducted shows that teachers are somewhat inclined to using technology. Therefore, the survey conducted at the University of Belize was geared at evaluating the use of Moodle, its features including collaboration with other programs, instant messaging, learning assessments, and most importantly, access to learning materials.
