Abstract

A good number of researchers have demonstrated the need for online training
for faculty members in various countries around the world in recent years. However, most
of these academic researchers have discussed the different effects of the online training
system. Conversely, the need for online training for female faculty members in Saudi
Arabia has not been adequately measured which is culturally very diverse and unique.
Thus, empirical evidence is clearly lacking and needs to be studied. There is also no
conclusive model for the Saudi Arabian educational industry yet exists. Thus, this study
aims to examine the factors that enable the intention to adopt the E-learning systems by
university lecturers. Accordingly, the approach adopted in this study employed the unified
theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). Using a self-administrated survey,
data were collected from (195) female English instructors from public universities in Saudi
Arabia. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was also employed as the primary method of
analysis. The results of this study have shown that the (UTAUT) components involve
(performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions are
significant influences the instructors’ intention (BI) to use (BBS). Therefore, these
outcomes can serve as an essential guideline for universities to enhance employee
motivation and conjointly to retain staff with high potential and talent within the setting of
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Finally, the theoretical, practical implications and the study
limitations are discussed, and future study directions are proposed..
