Abstract—The technology acceptance model (TAM) is an
information systems model that models how consumers use and
accept technology. Scholars have implemented TAM widely to
examine the effectiveness and ease of use of online learning.
Therefore, this analysis comprehensively analyses TAM’s role in
accepting online learning platforms by conducting bibliometric
and content analysis based on the PRISMA framework. Insights
into technology acceptance models were determined by
bibliometrics analysis with VosViewer and content analysis.
Methods: This study expanded all research from 2002 to 2020. A
sum of 120 publications was analysed in January 2022 as
documented in the Scopus database after applying the including
and excluding criteria in addition to the manual evaluation.
Results: This review’s findings identified the most compelling
subjects covered by the journal. Most prolific countries,
educational institutions, Journals, and authors were identified.
Additionally, the results demonstrate several significant models
for technology acceptance; several online learning environments
were outlined (MOOC, Moodle, E-learning, flipped learning,
and blended learning). Conclusion: The research presents a
roadmap for potential researchers, concentrating on critical
areas where success is possible. However, more research is
required to utilize the TAM model and incorporate different
online learning environments.
