Assessing eLearning Systems in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Higher Education Sector: An exploratory analysis


Alkhalaf, S and Drew, S and Nguyen, A, Assessing eLearning Systems in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Higher Education Sector: An exploratory analysis, 2010 International Conference on Intelligent Network and Computing (ICINC 2010), 26 - 28 November, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2010) [Refereed Conference Paper]


A new challenge for universities in the Muslim world, including the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is the need to develop suitable eLearning systems to facilitate distance learning and culturally acceptable mixed gender collaboration. This paper is a work-in-progress report on research being conducted on the assessment of eLearning systems in KSA. Our conceptual framework is the IS Success/Impact Measurement framework pioneered by DeLone & McLean (1992) and extended by Gable, Sedera & Chan [1]. We propose a range of indicators/items to measure the four dimensions of success and impact of an eLearning system as modelled by this framework.
