Cloud Computing Adoption Behaviour: an Application of the Technology Acceptance Model

Elaheh Yadegaridehkordi, Noorminshah A.Iahad, Shahla Asadi


Cloud computing is considered as a new technology which significantly affects teaching and learning processes in educational environments. Utilizing this technology not only enhances the quality of teaching and learning, but also reduces overhead expenditures of educational institutions. Despite the worthwhile advantages of cloud computing, however, its adoption is still far from full potential, particularly in university settings. Thus, this research is aimed to develop a theoretical research model for the adoption of cloud computing in university settings. For this purpose, Technology Acceptance Model is chosen as theoretical foundation and collaboration, mobility, and personalization are added to it as antecedents of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use.
