Abstract

This paper asks the question – how do differences in year of study and subject studied affect the likelihood of students adopting a new learning environment? Data from a study of students’ intention to adopt a Web conferencing environment is examined by the subjects in which they were enrolled. The results show that students’ perceptions of using the environment, as measured by a self-efficacy scale and motivation were related however there were few differences between the cohorts in other factors that influenced their intention to adopt the new environment.
