Investigating the Antecedents of University Students’ Behavioral Intention to Use iPad for Learning

Chunping Wu, Yating Kuo, and Shuling Wu
Abstract— This study, grounded on the Technology Acceptance Model, investigated a model incorporating the antecedents of university students’ behavioral intention to use iPad for learning purposes. A survey was conducted to gather data from 392 subjects who are matriculated in information technology-related undergraduate programs at Taiwan. The results supported the proposed model that university students’ behavioral intention was influenced by both of their perceived usefulness and ease of using iPad for learning. Moreover, their perceived ease of using iPad was in turn predicted by their self-efficacy toward this technology. Implications for practice and future studies are recommended.

Index Terms— Behavioral intention, iPad self-efficacy, structural equation Modeling, technology acceptance model.
