Title: Factors Influencing Teachers’ Intention to Use e-Learning Technologies for Teaching After the COVID-19 Pandemic: The Example of Croatian Secondary School Teachers
Duration: 15 min.
Abstract: Before the COVID-19 pandemic, acceptance of e-learning technologies for teaching by teachers had been a challenge in secondary schools in many European countries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all high school teachers used e-learning in their teaching. Since behavioral intent is one of the key factors influencing the actual use of e-learning in teaching, it is necessary to investigate the factors influencing the intention to use e-learning after the COVID-19 pandemic. The object of our research is to examine the factors that influence teachers’ behavioral intention toward using e-learning technologies for teaching after the COVID-19 pandemic in Croatian secondary schools. The results of the data analysis indicate that there is a significant positive relationship between attitude toward e-learning, educational values, e-learning self-efficacy and intention to use e-learning technologies after the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, a significant negative relationship is found between e-learning anxiety and intention. Finally, the results suggest that there is a difference in the evaluation of intention to use e-learning technologies for teaching after the COVID-19 pandemic by secondary teachers in terms of demographic variables. In this presentation, the results of our research will be presented.
