Abstract

This paper examines the effect of technology acceptance model on ICT usage in Nigerian tertiary institutions. The study was conducted at the university of Jos Plateau state, Nigeria as a pilot study. One hundred questionnaires were administered and collected containing 23 UTAUT survey questions and 9 demographic statements totaling 32 questions. The focus of this paper is on the UTAUT four constructs (PE, EE, SI & FC). The UTAUT model theories that four constructs have a significant determination on user acceptance of IT innovations. This was verified using multiple regressions of the four constructs on behavioral intention (BI) as reported in table 8. Three null hypotheses were stated thus: (1) The independent variables (PE,EE,SI &FC) do not have influence on the dependent variable BI.(2) UTAUT do not predict successful acceptance of ICT by the academic staff of Nigerian public universities. (3) Nigerian university academic staff rejects ICT acceptance and usage in their workplace. The findings show that for hypothesis (1), PE is significant with p-value 0.026; EE is significant with p-value 0.000; SI is not significant with p-value 0.340. FC is significant with p-value 0.037. Therefore for the independent variables (PE, EE & FC), we reject the null hypothesis (H01) and accept the alternative (H1).For SI, the null hypothesis (H01) is accepted. For hypothesis (2), we reject the null hypothesis (H02) and accept the alternative (H1). For hypothesis (3), we reject the null hypothesis (H03) and accept the alternative (H1). The study shows that performance expectancy, effort expectancy and facilitating condition have a significant positive influence and impact on the behavioral intention to accept and use ICT, by the university academic staff. However the findings show that effort expectancy is the most influential UTAUT construct.
