There is disproportionate operational, adoption, and use of information systems in developing countries. This paper reports on a research in progress on the adoption and use of SAMS in South African schools.

TAM is employed as theoretical basis of the paper. The pilot study results are reported. The computer literacy and SAMS training of users is which are facilitating conditions are very low.
