A Study of Fuzhou’s Undergraduate Behavioural Intentions to Use Tablet Personal Computer as Replacement of Textbook
Under the background of education informatization, the traditional classroom teaching mode and student learning style are quietly changing. Based on paper textbooks can no longer adapt to the current educational concept. In order to measure Fuzhou's undergraduate’s acceptance of new information technology, this paper used Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model to explore the intention of Fuzhou's undergraduates to use tablet personal computer instead of textbook. Total of 300 respondents which selected from 6 universities were collected using simple random sampling. Correlation Test show that Performance Expectancy (r=0.421, p<0.01), Effort Expectancy (r=0.387, p<0.01), Social Influence (r=0.582, p<0.01), Attitude of Using Technology (r=0.634, p<0.01), Facilitating Condition (r=0.587, p<0.01), Self-Efficacy(r=0.635, p<0.01) were significantly related to Fuzhou’s Undergraduate Behavioral Intentions to use Tablet personal computer as Replacement of Textbook. From the multiple regression model, F (7, 292) = 59.261, 57.7% variance of the Fuzhou’s undergraduate behavioral intention to use tablet PC as replacement of textbook was explained by five predictors, namely: Effort Expectancy, Social Influence, Attitude of Using Technology, Facilitating Condition, and Self-Efficacy. Implication and limitation also discussed.
