Predicting mobile learning acceptance: An integrated model and empirical study based on higher education students' perceptions
This research extends the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model based on expectation-confirmation and self-determination theories. It aims at exploring students' perspectives regarding the acceptance of mobile learning (m-Learning) in higher education. Although UTAUT receives considerable attention in technology acceptance research, this study unlike previous work as it is among the first to integrate self-determination and expectation-confirmation theories with this model in understanding m-Learning adoption, particularly in a case of developing countries. A total of 246 undergraduate students responded voluntarily to an online questionnaire. The findings suggest that integrating the UTAUT model with variables represent learners' basic psychological needs can highly affect their acceptance of m-Learning technology. The findings are further being discussed for theoretical and practical implications.
