This research explores the attitudes and behavioural intention of academic staff at selected Nigerian universities related to learning management system (LMS) use. Previous studies have shown that academic staff in Nigeria have little or no interest in the adoption and use of digital technologies planned and deployed in their institutions. This paper suggests ways that higher education institutions in Nigeria can encourage positive attitudes and affect the behavioural intention of academic staff to use LMSs proficiently. Academic staff (n=122) from three Nigerian universities were targeted using a simple random sampling method and requested to complete an online survey. Results of the research disclosed that academic staff had positive attitudes and some behavioural intention to use LMSs for teaching and learning, despite the organisational and technical infrastructure not being available to them. Consequently, this non-provision appears to have stifled the positive attitudes and behavioural intention of academic staff towards LMS use.
