Abstract

Several higher education institutions have combined Moodle and face-to-face instruction to support and assist student learning. However, the purpose of using Moodle will be appreciated if factors influencing the use of this learning platform are known. Therefore, this chapter investigated the effect of learning expectation and internet speed on university student Moodle usage and further examined the mediating role of perceived fun features of the Moodle. This present study employed a cross-sectional survey design with 327 selected university students. Data collected were analysed using structural equation modelling (SEM). The results revealed that internet speed, fun features, and learning expectation have a significant impact on university student Moodle usage. Furthermore, the findings from the analysis of mediation showed that Moodle perceived fun features mediate the relationship between learning expectation and Moodle usage in higher education. The implication of the results and further study avenues are discussed.
