Dr. Jayaron Jose , Ms. Blessy Jayaron Jose
The report summarizes findings of action research conducted among students (n = 96) at the University of Technology and Applied Sciences, Al Musannah (UTAS-A) about their perception of using MS Teams for online lessons based on principles of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). A 5-point Likert scale survey questionnaire was used to collect quantitative data, and some qualitative data was also collected as part of the survey to know learners’ general opinion on issues that are not covered in Likert scale questions. The quantitative data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics and triangulated with qualitative data findings for interpretation. The correlation-coefficient between perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of Microsoft Teams demonstrated a positive relation (Pearson r = 1), and the comparison of male and female data revealed some gender influence which is not statistically significant (p > 0.05)..
