Abstract

This paper is concerned with the improvement of teaching and learning process through the adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and e-learning in Jordanian higher education institutions particularly in The Hashemite University (HU). The main challenge of the study is to provide such an understanding of how ICT and e-learning would be accepted through applying the Diffusion of Innovation (DOI) theory. Factors influencing user acceptance and adoption of ICT in Jordan on student motivations for the acceptance of technologies necessary for the delivery of e-learning activities are handled in this paper. The findings show the significant relationship between student's perception of technology characteristics and their attitude towards using the technology in the educational system.

Ict In Jordan

Jordan is considered to have a transitional economy (Khasawneh, 2008) and exceptional among the developing nations of the Middle East because Jordan has fewer mineral resources compared to other developing nations in the region (Straub et al., 2001; Khasawneh, 2010; Khasawneh, 2008; Negash, 2010). However, it is also known that Jordan has one of the best educated, trained, and academically qualified populations in the arab world, but nearly one-third of its populations are students (Khasawneh and Stafford, 2008; Al-Jaghououb and Westrup, 2003).
