Science Students’ Acceptance to use LINE Application in Laboratory Subject

J. Chutrtong and W. Chutrtong

Abstract—This phenomenological study aimed to determine if it could be used for academic purposes. In this study, we examined how undergraduate students accepted LINE for classroom-related activities and explored the factors that might affect their intention to use it. Data were collected from 47 undergraduate students of Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University. Data were collected by using a questionnaire and analyzed to see if relationships existed among factors when LINE was used to organize classroom experiences. The findings showed that students have good experience on LINE using. The perceived ease of LINE using, the attitude towards usage and the intention to use LINE were rated above 4.0 (from 5.0). The study also suggested some kinds of LINE-based learning activities preferred by students. Students preferred to use LINE for reading the story posted by the teacher (89.4%), followed by communicating with teacher and classmates (80.8 %). Moreover, students like to send work (Informal) via line (76.6 %). Expressing emotions by sending stickers is another element that students like (74.5 %). The least popular usage is calling through LINE (12.76 %).
