Behavioral Intention of EFL Teachers to Apply E-Learning

Yuen Chee Keong, Omar Albadry and Wisam Raad

Abstract:
E-learning is the future of teaching because of its flexibility in terms of time and place and its ability to provide teachers with a convenient learning environment that enables them to learn efficiently, develop their professional expertise quickly and advance professionally. Considerable researches on e-learning have neglected the role of teacher's perspective in accepting the use of e-learning systems for in-service teachers. This perspective is important to determine their acceptance and behavioral intention as a key to successful anticipation. A questionnaire was disturbed to 52 respondents whom they are in-service secondary school Iraqi teachers of English as Foreign Language (EFL) in Al-Rusafa-1/Baghdad. The study use the Teo’s model as the theoretical framework which combines main acceptance models. Moreover, ANOVA test shows that the model is acceptable in Iraq. Using one sample t-test and found that perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, facilitating conditions, subjective norm and attitude toward use, had a significant positive effect on behavioral intention to use e-learning by in-service Iraqi EFL teachers.
