Abstract:
The aim of this paper is to determine the intention of supporting the use of a Learning Management System (LMS) under Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle), in the creation of virtual classrooms as support tools for on-campus work in higher education. We used as a case study the points of view of academic authorities from the National Polytechnic School. The opinion of this group was considered as they are responsible for policies in educational institutions: they lead and make decisions at the university. To prove this objective we considered perceived usefulness and easy usage. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was applied; this helped to confirm that the hypothesis of virtual classrooms used as support tools in on-campus study is backed by academic authorities, and is in concordance with global, regional and local trends. The results of the research show that age influences the acceptance of new technologies. It is interesting to know that the perception of quality backed by technology is high and that, based on the TAM model, the ease of use and obtained benefits were determining variables in accepting Moodle as an on-campus support tool. This is important because they prove the current state of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) at the university.
