|Abstract: ||The success of a virtual learning environment (VLE) depends on a considerable extent of student acceptance and use of such an e-learning system. After critically assessing four attitude-behavior models, including the Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), the Theory of Planned Behavior (TBP), the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), and TAM2, this study proposed a conceptual model to identify the factors affecting students’ behavior on acceptance and use of e-learning system. This conceptual model extended TAM2 by including self-efficacy, cognitive absorption and technical support factors.
The questionnaires were sent to 250 students from six different colleges of University of Natural Science in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam to collect data attending to this study. After being coded, the collected data was analyzed by using SPSS 16.0, SmartPLS 2.0 and Lisrel 8.5. The hypotheses of conceptual model is then validated with Partial Least Square Regression and Structural Equation Modeling techniques. Among the statistically significant paths found in conceptual model, subjective norm and perceived usefulness had strongest relationships to students’ acceptance behavior, while Internet self-efficacy had strongest impact on perceived ease of use and cognitive absorption had strongest impact on perceived usefulness. The findings have important implications for system designers, educators, and e-learning program managers who are trying to encourage students using e-learning as an effective way in their learning. In order to increase students’ use of e-learning system, not only educators but also program managers need to provide and assure the quality of online materials as well as the availability of external supports including mentoring and technical supports. System designers, on the other hand, have to enhance the system’s ease of use through good design and by providing clear instructions
