Abstract

Information and communications technology (ICT) represents an enormous opportunity to introduce significant and lasting positive changes across the developing world. Several attributes determine behavioural intention to adopt the technology. Some elements will stimulate end users' intention to use the technology, while others are detrimental. This study is designed to measure the relationship between various factors on individuals' perceptions of adopting an ICT-based instrument to stimulate ICT innovations. A model was developed by combining the technology acceptance model and the diffusion of innovation theory. A survey questionnaire was distributed among students and teachers in higher education and industry professionals working with university collaborations. A sample of 202 responses was analysed using structural equation modelling. A good insight into user acceptance and the adoption of a systematic model to reinforce ICT innovations are provided in this study with the derived results. Theoretical and practical implications for the factors influencing the acceptance of the system are discussed.
