Abstract

Tutors’ and students’ intentions to use emerging technologies (ETs) in e-learning systems in higher education institutions are a central concern of researchers, academicians, and practitioners. However, tutors’ and students’ intentions to use ETs in e-learning systems in distance learning are relatively low. The goal of the study, developed in Universitas Terbuka, was to investigate the factors that may affect tutors’ and students’ intentions to use ETs in online tutorials.

A Web-based survey was designed to empirically assess the effect of the aforementioned constructs on tutors’ and students’ intentions to use ETs in online tutorials. The statistical analysis results showed that the theoretical model was able to predict instructors’ and students’ intention to use ETs in online tutorials. However, not all three independent variables showed significant relationships with the dependent variable. Results of MLR analysis was consistent on technology competencies (TC) as having the greatest weight on predicting instructors’ and students’ intentions to use ETs.
