Rethinking Evaluating the Use of Distance Learning Systems in the Context of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology-2
Keywords:Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology, Technology Acceptance Model, Distance Learning Systems
Various theories and models are used to understand the impact of technology in education. One of these models is the UTAUT-2 model. This model allows us to understand the acceptance and use of technology. In this study, students' intentions and behaviours related to using the UBYS system, which is used as a learning management system, were examined within the framework of the UTAUT-2 model. The structural equation model was also used in the study. Smart PLS 3.3.5 and IBM SPSS Statistics v20.0 programmes were used for all data analyses. The study was conducted with 208 university students in 2021-2022. The result of structural equation modeling is that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, facilitating conditions, and hedonic motivation are among the variables that influence the use and acceptance of UBYS. The components of the model explain 75% of behavioural intentions. With the knowledge gained in this study, it may be possible to increase the usefulness of the UBYS system used. At the same time, the results of this study should make an important contribution to the literature on the UTAUT-2 model.
