Technology platforms such as Tech Wave Help use their cloud
technology and store the performance and interests in their databases
over the years which help them to improve outcome for students in
future.

. Microsoft’s Edu-Cloud, a cloud based computing solution platform


provides digital classroom having no printed books.

Perceived Usefulness: The degree to which a
person believes that using a particular
technology would enhance his or her job
performance.
Perceived Ease of Use : The degree to which a
person believes that using a particular system
would be free from effort.

Attitude Towards
Technology Use (ATTU)

Both PU and PEOU together shape the attitude


of an individual towards accepting a new
technology. Attitude towards using a specific
application results in whether he/she actually
uses it or not.

Behavioural Intention
to Use (BI/USE):

Behavioural intention is a function of PU and


ATTU. It explains about the different factors
which influences computer usage intention.

Incentives

Incentives is an external variable which


influences the behavioural intention to use
computers .
Some faculties expresses their concern that using ICT tools will
hamper their academic freedom and autonomy. So, institutes
need to address the issue and make necessary reforms by
providing incentives and rewards which will encourage them to
adopt the technology. Also, the students should know the
benefits of using technology in their respective fields and the
impact it will have in their life.
