Tools emerged from information technology, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS), have been proven to significantly boost the students' performance and productivity. Hence, many higher education institutions have adopted such systems. Given the fact of the growth rates in adopting LMS in university education and the imperativeness of the factors' evaluation before the adoption of such a system at State University of Tetova in Macedonia, adds to the urgency to conduct a research by which factors that predict the students' intention to adopt LMS to be examined. In this paper, based on extant literature review and by utilizing the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT), as the best model for predicting individual's technology acceptance, a research model is developed. By employing survey, the relations between the factors are described. Empirical data is gathered through purposive sampling technique. The results of this study, beside the theoretical contribution, are of a great importance to the university itself in promoting the use of technology in teaching and learning, and also confirm the need for adopting a LMS.
