AbstractThroughout the last decades, technology has become more advanced globally. It is being used in mostly all level of educations and recently adopted by many educational institutions which had the need to transition from a traditional learning environment to an online setting as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. This study aims to evaluate the success of the learning management systems (LMS) presently used at Orange Walk Technical High School by determining the task technology fit, Expected Consequences of LMS use, Perceived impact on teaching, and Consumerization attitude. LMSs process, store and distribute educational material and support administration and communication involved with teaching and learning. Unfortunately, technology can have a positive performance impact only if it fits the task that is being supported. Teachers from education institutions have implemented the use of learning management systems to deliver courses to students whether it being fully online or blended courses. In other words, face-to-face teaching and self-managed learning in the virtual learning and education environment (VLE). A quantitative (survey) method was applied in this paper. Teachers from Orange Walk Technical High School were asked to complete a survey about task technology fit and LMS being used at their institution. The data obtained by the surveys of 26 teachers were analyzed to evaluate the LMS utilized. Task Technology Fit (TTF) has a direct influence on instructors’ perceptions of the impacts of the LMS on their performance along with students and their impacts on learning effectiveness and productivity. A discussion of limitations, conclusions, and recommendations is included at the end of this study.
