Abstract

Mobile learning (m-learning) is considered as the next form of e-learning using mobile technologies to facilitate education for teachers and learners anywhere and anytime. Engaging the m-learning services in the Malaysian higher education could improve the availability of education. Students’ awareness of such technology is a key for success acceptance. This research aims to study the acceptance and use of m-learning services among Malaysian higher education students. The main objective is to propose a students' acceptance model of m-learning in the higher education environment. The study investigates the students’ acceptance of behavior intention to use m-learning and its effect on usage behavior in the higher education environment. It provides the knowledge base about the current state of students’ awareness about m-learning services. The study found that both of the environment and the infrastructure are appropriate to diffuse and utilize m-learning in the higher education environment. Furthermore, the results showed that the students have adequate knowledge and awareness to use such technology in their education environment. The limitations of m-learning for education were well concerned by students. The students’ perspective is very important to investigate the use behavior of m-learning in the higher education environment. Findings of the study suggest that the behavior intention to use the m-learning by students in the higher education environment have positive influence on the use behavior. Consequently, the availability of facilitating conditions is an important to influence students’ use behavior. The study suggests several factors as important determinants of the behavior intention to use the m-learning in the higher education environment. Specifically, behavior intension to use appears to be adopted and facilitated by the usefulness of m-learning services, so more usefulness of m-learning leads to more acceptances among students in the higher education
