The findings reveal that the lecturers’perceived usefulness and the perceived ease-of-use fall on high category (respectively, 72,95% and 71,1%) and the students’ lecturers’perceived usefulness and the perceived ease-of-use fall on high category (respectively, 79.10% and 72.50%). Out of all items, the lecturers mostly appreciated the flexibility of online learning in term of time and place (82.86%); and the students mostly appreciated the online learning’s opportunity to study English ((77,19%).
