Research Question

To address the research question, research question (what are the factors for the acceptance of analytics in LMS at Jordanian universities?) will determine the factors that impact on the acceptance of analytics in learning management system at Jordanian universities. This will be achieved through an investigation of the impact of LMS tools within different contexts on the research participants. The results of the investigation will reveal the factors influencing LMS use by the user participants. It is anticipated that the answers to these questions might be revealed from the aspects discussed below.

The first aspect is the social and cultural issues (Hofstede, Minkov, & Hofstede, 2016), which are very important because the culture of each country will influence how the LMS is used in that country. Infrastructure is another aspect that influences LMS use and refers to the availability and accessibility of technology, such as the availability of technology like PCs and Internet connections, and the accessibility of technology like access to the Internet and access to LMS tools. These two main aspects are the factors that may influence the use of analytics in learning management system at Jordanian universities (Majadlawi, Almarabeh, & Mohammad, 2014).
