Lubna A. Hussein, Mohd Faiz Hilmi


Cloud computing is considered as a new innovation which essentially influences teaching and learning forms in educational sector. Utilizing this innovation not as it were upgrades the quality of teaching and learning, but too diminishes overhead consumption of instructive educate. In spite of the beneficial points of interest of cloud computing, in any case, its adoption is still distant from full potential, especially in university settings. However, there are not many studies on the adoption of cloud-based E-learning systems. Thus, this research is aimed to develop a theoretical research model for the adoption of cloud computing in universities of Malaysia. For this purpose, TAM model is used to represent the research framework. A survey was conducted among 265 cloud-based E-learning participants and analyzed by structural equation modeling (SEM). The findings indicate that the adoption of cloud-based E-learning is influenced by need, perceived usefulness, although inattentiveness is not significant to use intention to adopt cloud based e-learning.
