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 %).
