Abstract—Mobile devices have become a trend of attractive learning devices for education. Advances in technology of electronic products add more possibilities of mobile learning. Currently, more and more people use the Tablet computers, which have also been suitable for mobile learning due to the merit of the screen rendering, user-friendly interface, and system performance. In this study, a vocational high school was considered as an example in employing HTC Flyer Tablet computer, its software and digital teaching platform. We investigated the user behavior of first year students of all disciplines in the vocational high school after the Tablet computers-assisted teaching activities was implemented. We adopted questionnaire survey in which the questionnaire items were classified into four facets of performance expectation, effort expectation, social impact and facilitating conditions based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) - Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT). The research results indicated that the facet of intention of use of Tablet computer was proportionally affected by the other three facets of effort expectation, social impact and facilitating conditions, which can be referenced by future Tablet computer-assisted teaching tool integrated with and employed in teaching activities and implementation.

Index Terms—Tablet computers, unified theory of acceptance and use of technology, teaching aids, e-learning.
