As many Korean universities have recommended the implementation of mobile learning (m-learning) for various reasons, the number of such tertiary learning opportunities has steadily grown. However, little research has investigated the factors affecting university students' adoption and use of m-learning. A sample of 288 Konkuk university students participated in the research. The process by which students adopt m-learning was explained using structural equation modeling technique and the Linear Structural Relationship (LISREL) program. The general structural model based on the technology acceptance model included m-learning self-efficacy, relevance for students' major (MR), system accessibility, subjective norm (SN), perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, attitude (AT), and behavioral intention to use m-learning. The study results confirmed the acceptability of the model to explain students' acceptance of m-learning. M-learning AT was the most important construct in explaining the causal process in the model, followed by students' MR and SN. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
