Abstract [en]

Information Communication Technology (ICT) is reshaping form and mode of delivery of higher education world wide. Some of the main challenges in education are access issues, and costs. In order to overcome those challenges ICT can play an important role. The application of ICT in the education sector can be referred to as e-learning, and comprises the use of various web-based technological tools with the purpose of disseminating education. The purpose of this study is to investigate what determines university students' acceptance of e-learning by applying the technology acceptance model (TAM). The study was conducted at a Swedish University among business students. The results demonstrate that Perceived usefulness is the main determinant of a student's acceptance of e-learning.

Abstract [sv]

Informations- och kommunikationsteknik (IKT) innebär en ny form och leveransmetod för högre utbildning världen över. Några av de stora utmaningarna inom utbildning är tillgänglighet och kostnader. IKT kan spela en viktig roll för att övervinna dessa utmaningar. Tillämpandet av IKT inom utbildningssektorn kan benämnas e-learning, och innefattar användandet av diverse webbaserade teknologiska hjälpmedel med syfte att sprida utbildning. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vad som avgör universitetsstudenters acceptans av e-learning, genom att tillämpa Technology Acceptance Modellen (TAM). Studien har utförts vid ett svenskt universitet bland ekonomistudenter. Resultaten visar att den upplevda användbarheten är det som huvudsakligen avgör studentens acceptans av e-learning.
