Inquiry learning provides the opportunity to develop an improved understanding of concepts being taught to students. It is a useful way of learning which enhances interest and motivation by providing the opportunity to access and manipulate information in a tactical and strategic ways. Web 2.0 technology platforms serve as medium for inquiry learning, interaction, collaborations, discussions and communication. However, research shows these technologies are still under used by educators and students. This paper presents six factors that would influence the use of these technologies for learning activities. A questionnaire and observation were used to collect data from 203 students and 76 lecturers in a Scottish university. Additional data was collected from experimentation with a focus group from the same institution. The research shows that perceived usefulness, facilitating condition, motivation, prior knowledge and performance expectancy would influence the use of these tools.
