A Comparative Study of Campus Portal User Acceptance: Student and Faculty Perspectives
Abuhamdieh, Ayman H.; Sehwail, Loay
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v8 n3-4 p40-49 Jun-Dec 2007
This study examined campus portal module use patterns and its user acceptance. A random sample is collected and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is used to explore student and faculty perceptions of the portal's ease of use and usefulness. These perceptions are contrasted to find any significant differences between the two groups. Study results reveal that students and faculty exhibit different attitudes and use patterns for the portal and its modules. Students were more receptive of the portal, and generally used its modules more often than faculty. Student and faculty attributions to these perceptions and use patterns are discussed. Study limitations and suggestions for future research are presented.
