dc.description.abstract In recent years, an increasing number of higher education institutions have been keen in integrating internet based technologies to be an integral part of the teaching and learning environment. However, research has revealed that in comparison to studies on other information and communication technologies, individuals’ behavior towards internet based learning tools has not been investigated and understood thoroughly. Consequently, the intention of this paper is to investigate the factors of availability of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and other university context factors that have influence on students’ intentions to use Internet-based learning tools (ILTs). The paper is based on a survey questionnaire distributed to a sample of 1092 university students, with a response rate of 72.8 percent. The result showed that availability of ICTs, university readiness, perceived usefulness (PU), subjective norm, Vice chancellor characteristics, university support and top management support significantly and directly impacted students’ intention to use ILTs. The integration of a university’s environment perspective into the technology acceptance model (TAM), resulted in our extended TAM model that captured both extrinsic motivation and university’s characteristics for explaining students’ intention to use new internet based learning tools. en_US
