Abstract

Universities and other educational institutions around the world are increasingly using e-learning technology to more efficiently and effectively deliver the education to their students. Successful implementation of e-learning system is determined by the acceptance of such system by students. Therefore this study was undertaken to explore the factors that influence the intention of students to adopt e-learning at the South Eastern University of Sri Lanka (SEUSL) and the investigation was carried out by using UTAUT model. It was found that, performance expectancy, effect expectancy and facilitation conditions are the important factors, that are influencing students' intention to adopt e-learning, and the results are contributory for the development of a strategy for implementing e-learning system at this university. It was also found that, both, the university and students are capable of adopting e-learning system.
