Abstract

Mobile technologies are developing rapidly among Malaysians. They offer more than just communicating. There are number of innovative features that are crucial and impactful offer by this technology for learning. It varies from tradition face to face learning due to its portability, accessibility, interaction, motivation, collaboration. However, mobile-learning is at its embryonic stage in this country, so much so that studies and research initiatives are critically needed to be undertaken. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate the factors influencing intention to use m-learning among students at the Malaysian technical universities. The research framework for this research has been adapted from the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). A total of 400 sets of data was collected from four Malaysian technical universities using the random sampling method. It was found that Performance expectancy, Perceived Playfulness, Self-management of learning have positive significant influence to predict behavioral intention to use m-learning, while social influence and effort expectancy show negative influence towards behavioral intention, performance expectancy, self-management of learning and effort expectancy show positives significance influence toward user satisfaction, while social influence and perceived playfulness showed negatives significance influence towards user satisfaction. On the other hand, it was found that user satisfaction partially mediates factors influencing intention to use and m-learning and behavioral intention to use m-learning. The findings of this study added new understanding as regard to factors influencing students' intention to use m-learning in higher education.
