This study is to examine the impact of LMS on academic performance using virtual competency theory and student involvement theory. To do so, the current study develops a research model utilizing theories in information systems and education disciplines to examine the moderating effect of virtual competency and the mediating effect of academic involvement on the relationships between LMS usage and academic performance. To test the research model, 113 college students were surveyed. Partial least squares (PLS) structural equation modeling was employed to analyze the data and these analyses provided empirical support for the proposed hypotheses. We believe our model extends our knowledge of (1) the traditional theories related to LMS, (2) the impact of LMS usage on academic performance, and (3) moderator and mediator in the relationships between LMS usage and academic performance.
