Abstract:
A prototype virtual university server in Lebanon (VUSIL) has been designed and implemented. The server is to be used as a basis for the creation of a digital campus facility in Lebanon. An important aspect of the server has been its use as a tool for attempting to assess potential students' attitudes to this approach to learning. This paper briefly describes the VUSIL system and then reports on an evaluation study within the framework of the Technology Acceptance Model (Davis, 1993). Levels of system acceptance of the VUSIL system were high and a range of subjects was identified that students would like to study using the system. Perceived usefulness was a mediator of the effect of perceived ease-of-use on intention-to-use VUSIL and the factor perceived ease of use was identified as a prerequisite for achieving high levels of system use, thereby confirming previous research.
