Explicating Studentsí Behaviours Of E-Learning: A Viewpoint Of The Extended Technology Acceptance
E-learning system is one of the most important elements that relates to the studentís activity in their learning process. E-learning offers students and academicians flexibility of time and place that allows learning process to be delivered or received in a more flexible manner. There is a need for further study to investigate on E-learning especially on the acceptances from students as the demand of integrating technology into the educational process increased. This study aims to explore the factors influencing student behavioural intention to use the E-learning system. This quantitative study recruits one hundred and thirty three distance learning (e-pjj) students of the Health Campus, Universiti Sains Malaysia. Data were collected through survey using a convenience sampling. The respondents were asked for consent before proceed the survey in order to ensure that the ethical consideration was taken into account. Results indicate the 3 factors that influence student behavioural intention with the highest mean value during conducting the study. Data analyses were performed using Spearman correlation and multiple regression analysis. Mean value of perceived usefulness is the highest with (4.2231), followed by perceived ease of use (4.1098) and the least is perceived enjoyment (4.1058). It also shows that perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use are significant and having positive relationship with behavioural intention meanwhile for perceived enjoyment is not significant. The study would suggest that there is a need for the stakeholders to provide a better technology and resources to make it E-learning more effective and undeniably acceptable by the users.
