Abstract

This empirical research article employs a quantitative research methodology based on existing research on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to model how college students in Puerto Rico perceive, accept and reject mobile learning technologies before university implementation. This study identifies the factors, perceptions, and attitudes of mobile learning acceptance at the individual level. The TAM themes included in this study are: attitude (A), behavioral intentions (BI), ease of access (EoA), ease of use (EoU), external influence (EI), quality of service (QoS), student readiness (SR), university support (US) and usefulness (U). The article's objective is to examine the determinants and behavioral intentions to use M-learning in higher learning institutions in Puerto Rico. By understanding the determinants, universities, and organizations that deliver educational content can develop intervention programs aimed at increasing user acceptance of M-learning.
