Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the extent to which perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and levels of computer proficiency predicted attitudes toward using Moodle for learning English as a foreign language in blended learning in Cambodia. The study was significant because there is no known extant research conducted on this topic in Cambodia yet. The study was a correlational design which used an online survey tool to collect data from 150 English language learners in English for Academic Purposes program at Australian Centre for Education in Cambodia. The findings showed that students' attitudes toward the use of Moodle for learning English were positive, and their levels of computer proficiency were higher than somewhat proficient. The results also revealed that perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use were the statistically significantly strong predictors of attitudes toward using Moodle. However, computer proficiency was not a statistically significant predictor of attitudes.
