Abstract—Prior empirical studies have articulated that IT adoption and usage were determined by user beliefs and attitudes toward IT. We adopted Technology Acceptance Model’s constructs to conduct a case study across two stages; Introduction and hand-on to examine the changes in users’ beliefs and behavioral intention to use smart phone for learning. The sample was conveniently selected of those who enrolled in Digital Systems course resulting in a sample of 60 potential users of smart phones. This study called for the respondents to progress through two stages of participation with smart phones. The results show that the hand-on session was effective in improving users’ beliefs and intentions to use smart phones for learning.
Index Terms—Beliefs, perception, smart phone, technology acceptance model.
