ABSTRACT

Recently, the unfortunate Covid-19 shutdown had a detrimental effect on the quality of education, which has been the subject of new literature and policy debates worldwide. Thus, the current study investigates the effect of instructors’ efficacy in utilizing a learning management system (LMS) and research engine on the educational quality in Jordan’s public institutions. Additionally, this work examines the moderating effect of institutional support on the association between instructors’ efficacy in using LMS and research engines and the quality of education at Jordan’s public universities. The current paper collected data via survey questionnaires and used smart-PLS to verify the linkage understudy constructions. The findings suggested that teachers’ ability to utilise a learning management system and a research engine had a strong and favourable relationship with educational quality. Additionally, the data indicated that institutional support has a strong moderating effect on the relationship between teachers’ efficacy in using LMS and research engines and the quality of education in Jordan’s public universities. This study is significant for regulators as they develop guidelines governing the efficacy of teachers and the quality of education at institutions.
