Abstract

The authors look at how business instructor needs are fulfilled by classroom management software (CMS), such as Moodle, and why instructors are sometimes slow to implement it. Instructors at different universities provided both qualitative and quantitative responses regarding their use of CMS. The results indicate that the top needs fulfilled by CMS are distribution of materials and communication with students. They also suggest that ease of use and usefulness of CMS are related to attitudes toward it, but that confusion in its use is not. Lastly, lack of clarity and time were the primary concerns of those who had not yet adopted CMS. Implications are discussed.
