ABSTRACT: 

The study examined the application of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) to Learning Management System (LMS) in Ahmadu Bello University Distance Learning Centre using a sample of 149 E-tutors. The study utilized primary data collected using the instrument of questionnaire and analyzed using multiple linear regression. Findings of the study revealed that performance expectancy and facilitating condition have positive influence on behavioural intention to use LMS in Ahmadu Bello University Distance Learning Centre. However, the study found that effort expectancy and social influence have negative influence on behavioural intention to use LMS in Ahmadu Bello University Distance Learning Centre. The study recommends that the management of ABUDLC should provide E-tutors with more facilitating conditions particularly, technical support and regular training on LMS use.
