The World Wide Web (WWW) is the future in teaching and learning. [...] Key Method A survey instrument was distributed to 450 undergraduate students and a total of 403 usable responses were obtained. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were implemented using structural equation modeling techniques through LISREL version 8.52. A structural equation model was used to fit and validate the Course Website Acceptance Model (CWAM) and the results indicated good fit to the data. Course website usefulness and…Expand
Students’ acceptance and satisfaction of learning through course websites
Purpose – This paper aims to understand the interrelationships between the various factors that affect the use of course Web sites by university students in a developing country. The factorsExpand
Teaching Business Research Methods with an Internet Course Website: Testing the Applicability of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) in Explaining Usage
The present research looks at the complementary nature of traditional classroom delivery with the use of Internet as supporting material. Data was collected from second year business managementExpand
Extending the Technology Acceptance Model using perceived user resources in higher education web-based online learning courses
The purpose of this research was to examine students’ acceptance of the World Wide Web Course Tools (WebCT) online learning system. The Perceived Resources and Technology Acceptance Model (PRATAM)Expand
Empirical examination of the adoption of WebCT using TAM
TLDR
The results indicate the importance of perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness in mediating the relationship of technical support with attitude and WebCT usage. Expand
An Analysis of the Technology Acceptance Model in Understanding University Students' Behavioral Intention to Use e-Learning
TLDR
E-learning selfefficacy was the most important construct, followed by subjective norm in explicating the causal process in the model, and proved TAM to be a good theoretical tool to understand users’ acceptance of e-learning. Expand
An Empirical Investigation of Students' Acceptance of OLAT as an Open Web-Based Learning System in an Egyptian Vocational Education School
TLDR
This study uses the Technology Acceptance Model TAM as a basic theory to address the factors that affect students' acceptance of using the OLAT Open Learning and Training system in an Egyptian vocational education school and shows that perceived ease of use is the main variable linking external variables with perceived usefulness, attitude, and system usage.

An Exploration of Student Internet Use in India: The Technology Acceptance Model and the Theory of Planned Behaviour.
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore behavioral processes involved in internet technology acceptance and use with a sample in India, a developing country that can potentially benefitExpand
Textbook websites: user technology acceptance behaviour
TLDR
Characteristics associated with the voluntary usage behaviour (UB) of TBW by students in entry-level accounting courses are examined and it is suggested that notwithstanding the potential benefits accruing to students, faculty encouragement is a critical enabling factor for use of the TBW. Expand
Course Website Usage: Does Prior Experience Matter?
Course websites have been used to enhance the delivery of learning materials that is not bounded by time and space. Although the usage of course websites are common in the West, but in a developingExpand

The technology acceptance model and the World Wide Web
Abstract The technology acceptance model (TAM) proposes that ease of use and usefulness predict applications usage. The current research investigated TAM for work-related tasks with the World WideExpand

TLDR
The results of the study showed that, even though perceived near-term usefulness had the most significant influence on the behavioral intention to use a technology, perceived long- term usefulness also exerted a positive, though lesser, impact. Expand
A Model of the Antecedents of Perceived Ease of Use: Development and Test†
TLDR
Data from three experiments supported the hypothesis that an individual's perception of a particular system's ease of use is anchored to her or his general computer self-efficacy at all times, and objective usability has an impact on ease-of- use perceptions about a specific system only after direct experience with the system. Expand
Empirical evaluation of the revised technology acceptance model
TLDR
A confirmatory, empirical test of the revised Technology Acceptance Model TAM confirmed that the TAM is a valuable tool for predicting intentions to use an IS and introduced and objective measure of technology acceptance, actual usage rather than self-report usage, which supports that self- report usage may not be an appropriate surrogate measure for actual usage. Expand
Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, and User Acceptance of Information Technology
TLDR
Regression analyses suggest that perceived ease of use may actually be a causal antecdent to perceived usefulness, as opposed to a parallel, direct determinant of system usage. Expand
Integrating internet tools into traditional CS distance education: students' attitudes
TLDR
The results show that the use of the Web increases as students advance in their studies, although even in this case the Web is not used as much as it could be, either as a communication channel or as a study tool. Expand
Assessing the Validity of IS Success Models: An Empirical Test and Theoretical Analysis
TLDR
The Seddon model conceptually elaborates and clarifies aspects of the DeLone and McLean model, thereby effectively integrating core theoretical relationships espoused in the IS success literature and supports Sedd on's three construct categories, as defining IS success and its impact on nature of IS use. Expand
User Acceptance of Information Technology: System Characteristics, User Perceptions and Behavioral Impacts
TLDR
Overall, TAM provides an informative representation of the mechanisms by which design choices influence user acceptance, and should therefore be helpful in applied contexts for forecasting and evaluating user acceptance of information technology. Expand

TLDR
This study examines how emotional and cognitive responses to visiting a Web-based store for the first time can influence online consumers' intention to return and their likelihood to make unplanned purchases. Expand
Testing the Determinants of Microcomputer Usage via a Structural Equation Model
TLDR
The tested conceptual model confirms the effects of individual, organizational, and system characteristics on perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness and confirms the importance of EUC support and management support, as well as the need for designing mechanisms to improve user perceptions of microcomputers.
