Determinants of Students' E-Learning Acceptance in Developing Countries: An Approach Based on Structural Equation Modeling (SEM)

Several studies have shown that apart from the mechanics of specific technologies involved in such educational solutions, successful implementation of e-learning is also based on behavioral and social factors. However, no substantial studies have been conducted to understand the importance of these factors in developing countries as it relates to the acceptance and use of e-learning. This study validates the extended technology acceptance model by incorporating two intrinsic motivation attributes, namely, quality of life and social influence in developing countries such as Liberia. This quantitative study used an online survey to collect data from 269 secondary and post-secondary students in Liberia (N = 269). Responses from the survey were analyzed using the structural equation modeling. The results indicated that student's behavioral intention to accept and use e-learning developing countries was significantly affected by their perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, quality of life and social influence. Both theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
