Abstract

The swift advent of technology has affected our lives and the way we are doing things, and education system is not excluded. Previous method of teaching and learning using boards and chalks is now being replaced by various technology-based teaching aids as a medium which can make the process more effective. In Malaysian Polytechnics, the Curriculum Development Unit is in consideration to implement a new software, AssetDiplomat, to be used as teaching aids in Financial Accounting classes. An investment in technology would be a waste if the technology is not being utilized; therefore, the objective of this study is to investigate the impact of perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, social factors and facilitating conditions on the behavioral intention to use AssetDiplomat software among the Malaysian Polytechnic lecturers. The research's theoretical foundation is based on the Technology Acceptance Model, and Triandis Model, which have been used in major researches involving technology acceptance and human behavior. A sample of 78 respondents has been selected for the purpose of this study and the results have been analyzed. The regression analysis indicates that there is a significant and positive influence of perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use and social factors on the behavioral intention to use the software. For facilitating conditions, although the influence is significant, indicate a negative relationship to the behavioral intention to use the software. For the management, the findings will help in understanding the factors which will influence the acceptance towards to the software. As for the academia, the findings validate most of the theories explained in the Technology Acceptance Model and the Triandis Model.
