The Influence of Exerted Pressure, Awareness and Attitude on Students Use of e-Registration

Mmamolefe R. Kgasi and Billy M. Kalema
Abstract—This paper describes a model for measuring university students’ acceptance and use of e-registration system by examining the influence of awareness, exerted pressure and attitude constructs together with three constructs of the Unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). The study is informed by data collected from Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), with a survey of 300 students sampled from four campuses. Results show that awareness, effort expectancy and social influence when mediated by behavioural intention predict actual usage whereas exerted pressure directly influences actual usage of e-registration. The study makes significant contributions to the literature of students’ acceptance, adoption and use of web-based tools in the academic domain.

Index Terms—Online registration, web-based tools, e-registration, acceptance and use of technology.
