Like most colleges and universities, Adventist schools are in a constantly changing academic environment and are under consistent pressure to implement the latest technologies, such as Learning Management Systems (LMSs). This research study seeks to provide a better understanding of faculty perceptions of their LMS by using a survey developed from the Technology Acceptance Model 3 with the addition of change fatigue. The results helped us determine what factors lead to successful use of LMSs by faculty. Responses from two hundred surveys from nine North American Adventist universities explored the factors that lead to intention and use. The study highlighted seven important factors in the implementation of an LMS. These factors included: Perceptions of LMSs, Experience, User Participation, Training, Peer Support, Voluntariness, and Change Fatigue. We expect that those administrating and directing Learning Management Systems that consider these factors will be more likely to experience successful implementation.
