Nowadays, e-learning has become significant in distance teaching. Nevertheless, factors influencing students’ behavioral intentions toward different e-learning platforms are still not well understood. This research-in progress aims to propose a conceptual framework that consider the key influencing factors that may enable or hinder the adoption of e-learning tools during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data will be collected from Sultan Qaboos University students by using an online survey to test the conceptual framework. The data gathered will be analyzed using structural equation modeling approach. This research-in-progress will help the decision makers formulate strategies to improve the adoption of online learning systems during the COVID-19 pandemic.
