UTAUT model, Learning Management Systems (LMS), Pedagogy


This research will identify factors that can influence students when using the learning management system (LMS) in learning educational pedagogy. The LMS that we mean in this study is Platform. This study aims to discover the factors influencing students to improve their pedagogical abilities using the Platform. The design model in the study uses the UTAUT model. Questionnaires with five UTAUT variables, namely performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating condition, behavioral intention, and use behavior, were distributed to students at one of the universities in Bandung. Hypothesis testing or data analysis of this study using the Structural Equation Model (SEM) approach with the help of the SmartPLS application. The results showed that the entire hypothesis was accepted or had a significant influence between variables. The most potent factors shown based on the results of the magnitude of influence are the variables facilitating conditions on student usage behavior and performance expectancy on student behavior intention. Therefore, this study recommends learning by utilizing technology, especially in universities, to improve students' knowledge and skills, one of which is using the Platform
