Reasons for contradictory findings regarding the gender moderate effect on computer self-efficacy in the adoption of e-learning/mobile learning are limited. Recognizing the multilevel nature of the computer self-efficacy (CSE), this study attempts to explore gender differences in the adoption of mobile learning, by extending the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) with general and specific CSE. Data collected from 137 university students were tested against the research model using the structural… Expand
Exploring students' awareness and perceptions: Influencing factors and individual differences driving m-learning adoption
TLDR
Perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use were found to be the primary factors driving students' intentions to use m-learning and bothm-learning services and social influence have positive effects on the acceptance of m- learning, while mobile limitations were foundto be the main obstacle restraining students' participation in a m- Learning environment.

Pre-service teachers’ acceptance of mobile-technology-supported learning activities
The purpose of this study was to develop a mobile learning acceptance model for pre-service teachers and to examine the relationships among technology acceptance factors. The literature on mobileExpand
Investigating the Moderating Effects of Gender and Self-Efficacy in the Context of Mobile Payment Adoption: A Developing Country Perspective
The adoption rate of mobile payment technology is relatively low in the developing world, particularly in Jordan. The need to study why people in Jordan are unwilling to participate in its adoptionExpand
A multivariate investigation of gender differences in the number of online tests received-checking for perceived self-regulation
TLDR
E-assessments is a self-regulated, technology-based instructional aid in higher education, independent of students' gender, because self-regulation was a covariate explaining the frequency of e-test received by students. Expand

An empirical examination of continuous intention to use m-learning: An integrated model
TLDR
An integrated model through the integration of three different theoretical models is developed, namely technology acceptance model (TAM), theory of planned behavior (TPB), and expectation-confirmation model (ECM), indicating that perceived ease of use, attitude, perceived behavioral control, and subjective norms are significant predictors to explain the continued use of m-learning.

Gender differences in perceptions and relationships among dominants of e-learning acceptance
TLDR
It is found that women were more strongly influenced by perceptions of computer self-efficacy and ease of use, and that men’s usage decisions were more significantly influenced by their perception of usefulness of e-learning. Expand
Computer based assessment: Gender differences in perceptions and acceptance
TLDR
This study identifies the constructs that affect male and female students' behavioural intention to use a computer based assessment (CBA) by taking into consideration the genders and indicates that both genders are more likely to use the CBA if it is playful and its content is clear and relative to the course. Expand
Computer use and the gender gap: The issue of access, use, motivation, and performance
TLDR
Results show that the gender gap is closing as far as computer access and self-efficacy are concerned and there is also some evidence that male students outperform female students at a computer task (remastering of Power-Point slides). Expand
Delineating the effects of general and system-specific computer self-efficacy beliefs on IS acceptance
TLDR
Extensions to previous research on computer self-efficacy (CSE) and systems acceptance are discussed by examining the impact of multilevel CSE on IS acceptance and finding that system-specific CSE represented a stronger predictor of perceived usefulness and behavioral intention than general CSE. Expand
Gender Differences in the Perception and Use of E-Mail: An Extension to the Technology Acceptance Model
TLDR
It is suggested that researchers should include gender in IT diffusion models along with other cultural effects, suggesting that more favorable communications environments might be created, environments that take into account not only organizational contextual factors, but also the gender of users. Expand
Investigating the determinants and age and gender differences in the acceptance of mobile learning
TLDR
The results indicate that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, perceived playfulness, and self-management of learning were all significant determinants of behavioural intention to use m-learning. Expand
Influence of Computer Attitude and Self-Efficacy on IT Usage Behavior
  • P. Chau

TLDR
The addition of computer attitude and self-efficacy into the TAM greatly improves the explanatory power of the model on the variance of perceived usefulness, which is again found to be a significant factor affecting the behavioral intention of using an IS/IT. Expand
Adoption of Educational Technology: How Does Gender Matter?.
Gender differences have attracted attention in today’s educational research and practice. Very few studies, however, explore the gender differences in the use of technology in higher education. TheExpand
Computer self efficacy, computer anxiety, attitudes towards the Internet and reported experience with the Internet, by gender, in an East European sample
TLDR
It is argued that the results tend to support the contention that the literature on attitudes and anxiety towards computers is liable to extrapolate to the Internet and that the countries of Eastern Europe may now be manifesting the gender variations in relation to technology that are found in Western Europe. Expand
Gender differences in computer attitudes and the choice of technology-related occupations in a sample of secondary students in Spain
TLDR
Gender only moderates the relationship between the cognitive dimension of computer attitudes and the enrollment intentions to pursue technology-related occupations, which is more salient among students coming from rural areas and the upper social class. Expand
