Abstract
E-learning is becoming more and more popular in many developed and developing countries. The number of E-learning users grows fast, especially in the community of college students. Taking China as an example, this paper investigates factors that influencing the college students’ using behavior towards E-learning services by applying an improved TAM (Technology Acceptance Model). The results show that “Perceived Ease of Use” is the variable which has the highest total effect on the users’ “Behavioral Intention” in E-learning application, followed by “Perceived Usefulness”. Besides, “Social Influence” and “Cost Tolerance” also have significant indirect effects on users’ “Behavioral Intention”. Based on this, we propose some suggestions for the E-learning platforms/companies to raise the use of the college students towards their services.
