Abstract

Cloud-based learning technologies play a central role in ensuring that learning and teaching practice can be conducted properly in the Covid-19 pandemic era. Although such technologies are advanced in mediating educational practice, the teacher’s acceptance toward the technology is usually far less to be understandable. This research aimed to investigate teachers’ acceptance toward cloud-based learning technology, in particular, for Microsoft 365 that currently being used massively in facilitating the educational process in Indonesia. In terms of theoretical framework, Technology Acceptance Model was employed with the inclusion of two original constructs, i.e., perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEU), and two extensive variables, i.e., perceived risk (PR) and social influence (SI) that will predict teacher’s intention to use the cloud-based learning technology during the Covid-19 pandemic. We collected data from teachers as research participants (N = 75) using the online survey method and employed Structured Equation Modeling (SEM) using SmartPLS for quantitative data analysis. The result revealed significant relationship among factors affecting the use of the technology, except for PU (path coefficient = 0.120, p value = 0.415) and PEU (path coefficient = 0.224, p value = 0.147). Regarding this interesting result, we add final reflections and recommendations for future lines of works.
