This research investigates the applicability of Davis' technology acceptance model to user acceptance of a knowledge management information system. It addresses two important questions: "Does the technology acceptance model explain user acceptance and usage of an information system implemented to support knowledge management objectives?" ''Can previous technology acceptance model user acceptance research serve as a basis for investigation of user acceptance of knowledge management information…

Technology acceptance in public sector: an empirical study of a Knowledge Management System in Kaohsiung City Government
This research investigates the applicability of the extended Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to user acceptance of a Knowledge Management System (KMS) in the public sector. Significant positive
Exploring the roles of personality factors on knowledge management system acceptance
This study is conducted to explore the roles of personality factors on Knowledge Management System acceptance. The proposed model in this research analyzes the roles of the five factor model (FFM)
Faculty intentions to use Web-enhanced instructional components
This study further validated the use of the technology acceptance model (TAM), as a helpful tool for understanding instructors’ intentions to use web-enhanced instruction. The TAM literature suggests
Exploring the acceptance for e-learning using technology acceptance model among university students in India
This paper examines the acceptance and behaviour of students towards e-learning using the technology acceptance model (TAM), within the framework of a course. The instrument used in the current study
Third Generation Knowledge Management Systems: Towards an Augmented Technology Acceptance Model
Examination of the applicability and sufficiency of the Technology Acceptance Model in the context of social software and newer generation knowledge management systems reveals that the TAM predominantly focuses on performance expectations on different behavioral levels and, thus, fails to account for the entire range of drivers and barriers related to KMS usage.
Failure of Knowledge Management Systems in the Financial Services Industry Research-in-Progress
The success of information systems (IS) and especially knowledge management systems (KMS) is defined through the acceptance and usage of them. Directly after the implementation the initial success of
Relationship between individual beliefs and usage of online knowledge sharing technology, and moderating effects of cognitive style among academicians in Malaysian Research Universities
Knowledge is a crucial device for institutions of higher learning, more specifically to Research Universities. In fact, the growth of these institution ties solidly to their capability of obtaining,
A research framework for the adoption and usage of executive information systems by organisational executives: an exploratory study
To improve the performance of executives’ work, a number of organisations have implemented executive information systems (EIS). Although the use of EIS is important in executives’ work, majority of
Trust in the System: The Mediating Effect of Perceived Usefulness of the E-Filing System
This study examines the mediating effect of perceived usefulness on the relationship between trust in the system (correctness, response time, system support, availability and security) and
The Mediate Effect of Trust on Organizational Online Knowledge Sharing: an Empirical Study
The conceptual model provides useful information for managers to enhance knowledge sharing through the promotion of trust at workplaces and shows that trust at workplace has a mediating effect on online knowledge sharing within organizations.


User Acceptance of Information Technology: System Characteristics, User Perceptions and Behavioral Impacts
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.
A Model of the Antecedents of Perceived Ease of Use: Development and Test†
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.
Empirical evaluation of the revised technology acceptance model
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.
Extending the technology acceptance model: the influence of perceived user resources
Perceived user resources are examined, which are measures of self-efficacy and perceived behavioral control that concentrate on how well individuals perceive they can execute specific courses of action, that can facilitate or inhibit such behaviors.
Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, and User Acceptance of Information Technology
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.
Understanding Information Technology Usage: A Test of Competing Models
The results indicate that the decomposed Theory of Planned Behavior provides a fuller understanding of behavioral intention by focusing on the factors that are likely to influence systems use through the application of both design and implementation strategies.
A Theoretical Extension of the Technology Acceptance Model: Four Longitudinal Field Studies
The present research develops and tests a theoretical extension of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) that explains perceived usefulness and usage intentions in terms of social influence and
Measuring System Usage: Implications for IS Theory Testing
Conceptual as well as methodological issues related to measuring system usage are addressed and it is suggested that system usage should be factored into self-reported system usage and computer-recorded system usage.
