Moya, Musa; Akodo, Robinah

Abstract:
Students' numbers participating actively on the e-learning KNG platform, enrolling for studies and completing the PGD ICT Policy & Regulation programme has been reducing since 2004 (Nettel Africa Academic Board reports 2005, 2006 & 2007). This could be attributed to perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and behavioural intention to use the KNG nettel platform. The Technology Acceptance model (TAM) was employed to obtain the impact of perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and behavioural intention to use on KNG Platform Usage. Using A crosssectional and correlation designs findings indicated that 48% of the system usage was predicted by perceived ease of use perceived usefulness and behavioural intention to use. There was a significant positive relationship between perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness; behavioural intention to use the KNG platform; and actual system use. Deliberate ICT Policy to encourage the usage of web based learning through provision of ICT facilities to the users is recommended.
