Abstract—Seventy-five students had been selected randomly from an institution of higher learning to predict their behavioral intentions towards using the m-learning. The study uses standard instrument to capture students’ responses on the three basic constructs of technology acceptance model (TAM) that includes perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEOU) and attitude. Then data were analyzed through Smart-PLS in order to find out if PU remains the significant determinant of the attitude that in turn predicts the behavioral intention of using the m-learning technology. This model has moderate explanatory power with 38% of the variance in behavioral intention is from the attitude of the students. Based upon the conclusion, some pedagogical recommendations have been made for the relevant authorities.

Index Terms—M-learning, technology acceptance model (TAM) students, technical university and Brunei Darussalam.
