Abstract

 This study investigated awareness of and attitude to the Learning Management System among undergraduates at University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Two research questions were raised to guide the study. The study adopted the survey research design. The Department of English was selected from the Faculty of Art, University of Ibadan. A simple random sampling technique was used to select 50 students from 100 Level, 200 Level and 300 Level in the Department of English, University of Ibadan. In all, a total of 150 students in the English Language department participated in the study. Two research instruments were used for data collection: Students’ Awareness of the Learning Management System.  Questionnaire (r=0.76) Questionnaire on Students' Attitude to the Learning Management System (r=0.80). Data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics of percentage, mean and standard deviation. The findings of the study revealed a weighted mean of 3.31 against the threshold of 2.50 which showed that the level of awareness of undergraduate students about the learning management system was high. Also, it revealed a weighted mean of 2.56 greater than the threshold of 2.50 which showed that the majority of the selected undergraduates had a positive attitude to the learning management system. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that relevant educational bodies and stakeholders should ensure that both lecturers and undergraduates are aware of Learning Management System. Government should do everything possible to provide online facilities and equipment for tertiary institutions. The Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) and other educational bodies should organise seminars, workshops and conferences on how to use online platforms to teach English Language courses effectively.
