ABSTRACT

Homeschooling has acquired global attention due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, and its success will require the regulators’ attention and the focus of new researchers. Thus, the current paper examines the effect of students’ willingness to embrace a new educational system and teachers’ capacity to adopt a new educational system on the success of the Jordanian homeschooling system. Additionally, this study explores the mediating function of improved learning ability in the relationship between students’ desire to accept a new education system, instructors’ ability to adopt a new education system, and the success of Jordan’s homeschooling system. Primary data were collected by surveys and analysed using smart-PLS. The findings revealed a favourable correlation between students’ desire to embrace a new education system and teachers’ capacity to adopt a new education system and the success of the homeschooling system. Additionally, the data revealed that enhanced learning capacity plays a key role in mediating the relationship between students’ desire to accept a new education system, teachers’ ability to adopt a new education system, and the effectiveness of Jordan’s homeschooling system.
