Impact of Student Training on the Perceived Ease of Use and Ease of Navigation of a Learning Management System

  • The impact of training for a new Learning Management System (LMS) was examined in this action research project. The study surveyed students (n=276) and determined that training did not affect the students’ perceived ease of use of the LMS. The time to complete the training was significantly lower (m = 35.54) than estimated (2 hours), and it was concluded that online training may not be an effective intervention to improve technology use and adoption for a younger demographic. An unanticipated result of the study was that students grossly over-reported completion of training, and this may be confirmation that survey fatigue is growing among the younger demographic. Over-reporting may be worthy of future study.
