Abstract—This article describes the development of a
theoretical framework for factors that influence adoption of
web-based Learning Management Systems (LMS) in Saudi
Higher Educational Institutions (SHEI). LMSs help such
institutions manage the information required for planning and
making informed decisions. LMSs also facilitate effective and
efficient information management, allowing SHEI to improve
their abilities in teaching and learning experience. However,
higher learning institutions remain hesitant to adopt LMS
projects. Such systems are relatively recent additions to
educational institutions; thus, there are certain roadblocks to
adoption. Thus, a framework is proposed to facilitate LMS
adoption in SHEIs. The proposed framework considered 17
factors collected from relevant literature, with unified theory of
acceptance and use of technology and
technology-organisation-environment serving as the foundation.
The proposed framework is expected to help SHEIs identify and
comprehend the various individual, technological and
environmental factors that must be considered when
implementing an LMS.
Index Terms—Web-based systems, electronic management system (LMS), factors, Saudi higher education institutions (SHEI), adoption, efficient, decision, UTAUT, TOE.
